Martigny lies at an elevation of 471 m. about 33 km south-southeast of Montreux. It is on the east edge of the Rhône valley, at the foot of the Swiss Alps, and is located at the point where the southwestern flowing Rhone turns ninety degrees northward and heads toward Lake Leman. The Drance River flows from the Valais Alps into the Rhone here.
Martigny's history reaches back two thousand years: Celtic tribes, the Romans, and Napoleon's troupes have left behind traces. A restored Roman amphitheatre, temples, citizen living quarters, and thermal baths can be seen in Martigny today. Martigny became the first bishop's seat in Switzerland. Today it is admired for its historical districts of La Bâtiaz and Vieux-Bourg which feature churches and secular buildings worth seeing.
