The St. Bernard Pass

For centuries, an 11th century hospice welcomed weary travelers and pilgrims who crossed the St. Bernard Pass on foot. Heading across the pass into Italy, we stop to walk with the St. Bernards who are still raised here. In ages past, these legendary heroes were trained to rescue stranded travelers.
