"This is a fortified church situated on a hilltop. The climb up to it from the city centre is pretty steep and the last part of the route is over rough stones - definitely not wheelchair accessible. The church would have made a rather tough place to attack in the middle ages. Its being restored at th..."e moment and has been for some time. Because of the restorations its only possible to visit the nave at the moment. The quire can be glimpsed through a pair of locked glass doors. Of not in the interior are some wall paintings, an ancient organ sat on what appears to be the prow of a boat that's crashed through the west wall, and a rather curious bridge across the nave high up near the vaulting. An interesting enough church to visit but for me the real star is the panoramic view over Sion and the Rhone Valley from the western battlements . There's a small museum next to the church which I haven't visited - plus twice a week there are displays of birds of prey from the cliffs east of the chu...

"More similar in size to some of the Welsh cathedrals like Brecon or St. Asaph than Canterbury. The inside is pretty dark - the result of a lot of modern stained glass in strong, but dark colours. Otherwise the interior is quite bare - there is very little in the way of monuments. The church is very ..."easy to get to - right in the centre of the city. The oldest part of the church is the west tower which is 12th century Romanesque and the newest is the end of the quire at the other end which was finished in 1947. Probably not worth making a trip to Sion on its own, but worth stopping into if you are in the city. No doubt its appeal will be greater to those with an interest in 20th century stained glass.

"I took my two children to the park and spent 3 hours watching them enjoying themselves aerial trekking. I felt the safety explanation at the beginning was very good and the children started on an easier section, gradually increasing the difficulty. They loved the zip wires. Parents have to watch the..."ir children at all times but there are conveniently situated benches so it's not too arduous. After we went and sat by the lake and watched the Cirque du Sion students practising on the tightrope across the lake.
The safety system is excellent in that there are two locks and you can only unlock one at a time. I was surprised that there were no helmets - perhaps they might consider this?
