Culture

The Valle d’Aosta is a region rich in history and Etroubles is no less important in this aspect.
The ancient village, with its characteristic stone houses, roofs in lozenge tiles and a magnificent view of the mountains of Les Aguilles de l’Artanavaz, is a visit that cannot be foregone along the historical Via Francigena, which went from Canterbury to Rome.
Since 2005, with the inclusion of important works by world famous artists in its narrow streets, the ancient village has been transformed into an open-air museum entitled “À Etroubles avant toi sont passés…”.
The Museum, which can be visited 365 days per year, 24 hours per day, is inspired by the pilgrimage along this important road, which connects northern and southern Europe.
Other initiatives take place alongside the permanent artistic itinerary each year, with the organisation of shows (calendar of events) such as the show on Rodin and Claudel of 2007 and "From Degas to Picasso" in 2010, which was organised thanks to the collaboration with the Gianadda Foundation of Martigny and the placement of new works on specific themes.
Due to its strategic position, the campsite is also convenient as a starting point to visit our beautiful region: Aosta, the castles, parks and all the lateral valleys.
