Propéraz bread oven


The Propéraz community bread oven, built in 1663, was used several times a year to bake large batches of bread for local inhabitants and passing guests.

Thick stone walls, a small wooden door, a shingle roof topped by a chimney: the small building that stands on the Place de Propéraz, Troistorrents, is a valuable remnant of a time when several neighborhoods village – as elsewhere in Valais – had their own bread oven. Until 2014, its state of disrepair no longer allowed it to be used. It is to safeguard this historical heritage that an association was born, under the impulse of inhabitants of Propéraz. The stakes were high, but the motivation of this group of volunteers allowed to renovate and give back to this furnace the role of social cement which was his formerly.
