Gouffre des Busserailles and Cheneil in Valtournenche
The ravine is located 3 km from the center of Valtournenche along the regional road n.46 to Breuil-Cervinia. It is a crack in the rock 104 m long and 35 m deep created at the time of the great thaw thanks to the erosive action of the water and the Matterhorn glaciers. The ravine is crossed by the Marmore torrent which here creates a majestic waterfall with a drop of 10 metres.
Rascard d'Entreves and the birthplace of Luigi Carrel (1904-1983)
The Rascard d'Entreves is one of the architectural jewels of Valtournenche. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Town Hall, with which it is connected by a tunnel which also allows access from via Roma, i.e. the regional road to Breuil-Cervinia. The Rascard was completely renovated in 1999 in order to enhance the quality of the building, whose construction dates back to the beginning of the 17th century (the ridge beam is dated to 1610).

In this small square, which the new town hall overlooks, medallions, headstones and commemorative plaques are displayed which remember and celebrate the famous Matterhorn mountain guides, the "mountainers" of Valtournenche, true precursors of modern mountaineering.
