Photographer's Note

What a beautiful place, not only the church, but also all the village and the landscape in Triesenbreg. Triesenberg is the largest and also the highest municipality in the Principality. It offers a fantastic view of the Rhine Valley. The town was settled between 1280 and 1300 by Walser mountain farmers.
Even today, the inhabitants speak a Walser dialect that is different from the dialect spoken by the valley inhabitants. The first settlement site and the religious hub of the Walser in Triesenberg was the Masescha area, at an elevation of 1250 meters.
The Chapel of Theodul is located there (first documented in 1465). The history of the Walser is documented in the Heritage Museum. As in the valley municipalities, the importance of agriculture in Triesenberg has significantly diminished in recent decades
