Valais Bisses Museum

To know everything on the history of the bisses

First of all: what is a bisse? It is an irrigation canal with a gentle slope that take the water from mountain streams and rivers to agricultural land, mainly the meadows and vineyards.  

The museum relates the history of the bisses over the centuries. It is on 4 floors in Botyre, on the cantonal road between Anzère and Sion. It offers visitors a veritable trip back in time on its 270 m2 of exhibition area.  Close to 1,000 documents and hundred of objects help visitors to understand why the bisses were so important for the region’s development for such a long time.
