It's not always easy to introduce youngsters to hiking: fortunately, Valby is there to help them! With a booklet in his pocket, Valby challenges children to discover the most beautiful hikes and especially those most adapted to their level.
Stroll through the neighbourhoods of Valberg on a family outing, pausing to admire a stunning view or to gaze up at an impressive building. Meandering through the streets and paths of the ancestral hamlets, discover Valberg at your own pace and in your own time.
It is by getting lost in the streets of the village that you will discover all the charm and authenticity of this place which dates back to the Middle Ages. This path leads through streets and residential areas: rue du Four, goulet de l'Orfèvre, Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs, Saint Arige and the Saint Vincent church, a small jewel of baroque art, but also the setting of the 22nd BCA.
