B – Religion in the Walser culture
Religion was another feature of the Walser community. We have a very strong sense of faith, a characteristic that still has an important role in our small community today. At one time we had to travel as far as Issime to go to mass, but thanks to my ancestors we have our own church today too. By looking at where our cemetary is situated you might notice something particular about our faith. Unlike other towns, in Gressoney-La-Trinité, Gressoney-Saint-Jean and Issime the cemetary is in the town where the inhabitants live. In Gressoney-La-Trinité our cemetary is located between the church and the school.
