Switzerland is a seismic country and it is in the canton of Valais that the seismic risk is the highest. Knowing and understanding the seismic risk is therefore fundamental in order to be well prepared and to take adequate preventive measures.
It is in this spirit that the 75th anniversary of the earthquakes of 1946, major events that marked our canton, will be commemorated.
The "Earthquake of 25 January 1946 treasure hunt”, which is part of this commemoration, is intended for the general public, children and families.
The aim of this game is to raise awareness about the risks from earthquakes by using knowledge gained from the 1946 earthquake and its aftershocks.
This route through the old town of Sion is created using the GuidiGO app, which has a wide range of options to create a fun and stimulating treasure hunt. This game features Wallis, "the seismograph mascot" and 13 interactive stops that can be equipped with 3D objects, enlivened by the audio guides.
