La Magdeleine in miniature

La Magdeleine

opening days and times

La Magdeleine in miniature, the embossed plastic in 1:87 scale illustrating faithfully every little detail of the village of the Matterhorn Valley can be seen in the exhibition hall Lo Payé in the Brengon hamlet.

Its creator, Mario Castelli, ” a retired-artist, has chosen to live in La Magdeleine in 1990, after working for a long time as a glassmaker for prestigious French and Belgian companies. For about twenty years he’s been working four or five hours a day in a room of the town hall to realize a miniature masterpiece, the model of La Magdeleine with its five villages.

Everything has been reproduced: the parish church, the 200 buildings, the town hall, the green areas, roads, mills, streams, even the Magdeleins and holidaymakers (some have recognized themselves, leaning out from balconies, while chatting with each other or walking with the dog…).
