• Short Summary

    We visit the Valley of St Bernard between Italy and Switzerland and see the famous hostel.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Dogs of Mercy - A St Bernard Cameo'.

    Italy.

    In the Italian Alps we see various shots of an Alpine village and surrounding mountains and countryside. We pass the customs post on the Italian frontier then see the hostel of St Bernard of Menthon, founded in 1080, in the Valley of St Bernard.

    A man is seen feeding several St Bernard dogs. We see the dogs jumping for food and a tiny St Bernard puppy sitting by itself.

    We then pass into Switzerland and see the Col Feneste and Lesache and Arbanavaz peaks in the distance. Some people stop for a picnic on some rocks while a couple are taken by a priest to look at a statue of St Bernard.
