Mont Fallère open-air Museum

Saint-Pierre

All the way to the refuge Mont Fallère, little wooden creatures such as: owls, hawks, hares, groundhogs, woodpeckers, capercaillies, foxes and eagles are hidden behind branches and stones. But between trees you may also find curious gnomes watching you.

Approaching the refuge, the sculptures become bigger: here is the grandfather indicating the right path to the shelter to his nephews while not too far away there is a couple of chamois and ibex, but also a villager who, caught by a sudden urge, hides behind a stone.

The open-air museum sculptures are made by using a special type of wood that will last long time in the open air.
The only exception is the Madonna that was inserted into a cave to withstand the high mountain weather.

While walking you will feel like being in a treasure hunt among wooden sculptures and the scents of the mountain.

Most of those works of art (about 100/120 sculptures) were carved by Siro Viérin .
