Sion lies in the southwestern part of Switzerland , in the valley of the river Rhone. It has approximately 28 000 inhabitants. The city is the administrative centre of the canton of Valais. According to archaeological findings, the place has been inhabited since the Stone Age. Later, the Romans founded a town here. In the 5th century, the Burgundians lived here. In 1810, the area was occupied by the French. In the centre of Sion is the square Place de Planta. Nearby stands a bishop's palace. In the city, we can see the remains of fortifications and the Tower of Witches from the 12th century. As far as religious monuments are concerned, we can mention for example the cathedral Notre Dame du Glarier founded in the 11th century or the St. Théodulus Church from the 16th century. The town hall in the centre of Sion dates back to the 17th century. On the ground floor of this building is a stone with an inscription from the year 377. Palaces Vidomat and La Majorie offer an exhibition of collections of works of art. 120 m above Sion rises a fortified residence of the Sion canonry - the Notre Dame de Valére built in the 12th and 13 centuries. It is a three-aisled basilica with frescoes from the 15th century. We can see here the oldest playing organ of Europe . On a higher hill stands the damaged Tourbillon Castle built in the 13th century.
