About this picture

Martigny-Combe is a municipal and civil parish in the Martigny district in the French-speaking part of the Swiss canton of Valais . The main town of the municipality is La Croix. The mayor is Florence Carron Darbellay.


Martigny-Combe lies at the intersection of two road axes. Ending in La Croix highway 21 leads the main road 21 further over the Great St Bernard to Italy by the end of the highway from branching off the main road 202 leads from La Croix over the Col de la Forclaz to France.

The municipality consists of La Croix and several hamlets.


In the Middle Ages, what was later to become Martigny-Combe belonged to Kastlanei Martigny . In 1475, like all of Lower Valais , it was conquered by the seven Upper Valais tens . In 1833 the residents opposed the revision of the federal treaty and marched on the Bastonnade de Martigny against its liberal supporters.

Politically, the place belonged to the municipality of Martigny until 1841 and has since formed its own municipality. La Bâtiaz split off from Martigny-Combe in 1845 and Trento in 1899/1900 . Ecclesiastically, Martigny-Combe still belongs to Martigny today; it is looked after by the Augustinian canons of the hospice on the Great St. Bernhard .
