  • Lourtier appears to control the access to the top of the Valley. It does indeed occupy the last plateau before the two sides of the Dranse begin to narrow. 

  • In 1932, Lourtier attracted national media coverage with the building of the church designed by the architect Alberto Sartoris. lts concrete structure and
    its one-sloped roof offers a clash of styles at the centre of this mountain village. Lourtier is also the village where the inventor of the Glacier Theory, Jean-Pierre Perraudin, was born and his birthplace has become the site of the Glacier Museum.
