More informations

Naturpark Pfyn-Finges - The distinctive corpus of the Town Hall tower with its pentagonal base is situated at the entrance to the town in the immediate vicinity of the bishop's castle.

Built in the 13th century, the tower served as the official residence of the representative of the provincial lord, the Bishop of Sion. During the Raron conflict in 1415, the original building was severely damaged.
In 1541 the building was converted by Ulrich Ruffiner to become the town hall. The situation and the size of the building emphasize the claim to power of the rich citizenry. The tower has been a listed building since 1934 and, together with the town hall in Sion, offers probably the most telling evidence of a self-assured citizenry in the canton of Valais.

Today there are several premises available in Leuk-Town hall. These can be hired directly from the Citizenry in Leuk.
