BURGKIRCHE

The late-medieval church dominating the village of Raron has been built around 1500, still in gothic style. The architect was Ulrich Ruffiner who was a well-known architect in Valais at the time.

Inside there are impressive mural paintings showing the Last Judgement.

The famous poet Rainer Maria Rilke(1975-1926) has been buried in the cemetery, just in front of the southern wall of the church.
