Free Spirits Outing
About this event :
For over 500 years the faithful Swiss Guard have been serving the papacy. Today they still stand tall in their uniforms in front of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome as symbolic protectors of the Pope.
No other Swiss municipality over the centuries has contributed more Guards than Naters. For this reason the historian Wener Bellwald decided to open a museum in their honour in the old military fortress above the town.
A former Swiss guardsman will conduct this private tour and explain the history and traditions of the Swiss Guards.
