Bisse de Savière. An old path renovated during the past 5 years. Thanks to a lot of donation made by local compagnies and people.
In Valais, bisse were build around 1400-1800. There are in fact artificial rivers build to bring water to the fields as this a the most dry region of Switzerland. As this is in mountain, nothing is easy. The path of these bisse often goes through cliffs as you can see.
You can see on the poster how people were building these path.
