Stans is the capital of the half-canton of Nidwalden, which together with Obwalden forms the canton of Unterwalden, one of the three founding states of Switzerland. We are here in the centre of this large village, at the corner of the Catholic church of St Peter and Paul, in front of the Ölbergkapelle (chapel of the Mount of Olives, end of 15th century).
