Ollon - St-Triphon

The landscapes seem immutable and eternal. However, when one looks more closely, one can see both natural vestiges and vestiges created by humans. They are the starting points of fascinating travels through time. It is in this way that the hills St-Triphon have given valuable information to geologists, archaeologists and art historians. It is via the stones, at the same time construction materials and recorders of natural processes that one discovers places where environment and culture are not motionless, but always in evolution.
