Col du Grand-St-Bernard
The hospice was established in the 11th century by Bernard de Menthon to provide shelter to the worn-out travellers following the exhausting pathway, which long remained a major trans-European road, travelled by Napoleon himself to join Italy. Today the hospice is still open to travellers but has also become a peace-inducing spiritual haven. The Great St Bernard Museum recounts the history of the path. In its vicinity visitors can discover the St Bernard dog kennel’s nursery. Bred for mountain rescue, St Bernard dogs have become famous through countless tales of Alpine adventures, among which Barry’s are the most famous.
