Church of Saint Martin

In the mid-19th century, the Anniviards of Muraz had this church built at their own expense so that they could attend Mass in French, because at the time Sierre was still predominantly German-speaking, while the inhabitants of the Val d'Anniviers spoke a local variety of Arpitan, the Romance language formerly spoken in France, Switzerland and Italy.
