Discover in a fun way the heritage of Nendaz and the Deserter, this mysterious French wanderer who painted in the middle of the 19th century for the people of Nendaz in exchange for their hospitality and silence. A mission will be entrusted to you. But will you be able to carry it out?
One autumn evening in 1846 or 1847, the Deserter, tormented by hunger, knocked on the door of the Fragnière chalet. The man said his name was Charles Frédéric Brun, that he came from France and could no longer return. Hunted, the Deserter wandered around. He knew how to compose prayers. He knew how to "tsernà", exorcise demons. Above all, he painted in exchange for the hospitality and silence of his hosts.
Did you know that the Archangel Saint Michael, protector of Haute-Nendaz, is also the prince of the angels in charge of weighing souls at the Last Judgement? And did you know that the devil once came to torment and punish the people of Nendaz for their generosity there? But who was the Deserter and why did he leave so many riddles behind?
Thanks to the Deserter and local legends, discover Haute-Nendaz as never before through an enigmatic circuit full of surprises. Secret places closed to the public are opened especially for you.
