About the village

Saint-Rhémy is the village more important of the Alta Valle del Gran San Bernardo (Sèn Rémi anda Boursa in patois valle daosta; San Remigio during fascism from 1939 to 1946; Saint-Rhémy until 1991). The main towns are Saint-Rhémy, St Léonard (municipal seat), Prédumaz-Falcoz and Ronc.

The function of the inhabited center closest to the hill on the slope of the southern Alpine has characterized Saint-Rhémy over the centuries. The toponym Latin is Endracinum: in Roman times on the place stood an important Mansio to control the road, while the villa of Dominus Baucius stood not far from the artery, on the hill.

Subdued the invasion of the Huns, of the Burgundians, the Longobards and the Carolingians and Saracens, passing from hand to hand between the VI to the X century. According to tradition, during the domination burgunda king Gontrano for passage of the valley, had himself baptized by St Remigio archbishop of Reims in 496 d.C., thus giving the name to the country.

Saint-Rhémy-en-Bosses is mentioned in the report of the itinerary of Sigerico of Canterbury who, around 990 went to Rome to receive from the hands of Pope John XV the Pallium; this path in the subsequent centuries would have been called Via Francigena. In particular the location it was the 48th stage (submansio), and was defined by the Archbishop of Canterbury Sce Remei. He stayed there before you pass the Colle del Gran San Bernardo.

Certainly deserve a visit the Castle of bosses, the church of San Lorenzo, the church of St Léonard and the Vallo Alpino del Littorio. In the Swiss territory, on the homonymous pass, you will find the Museum of the Hospice of the Gran San Bernardo or Museum of Colle del Gran San Bernardo.
