Arts and Entertainment: Enjoy the summer, with concerts, plays and pageants that indulge in the history of castles and monuments, but also are venues for unusual events such as botanical gardens.
Attractions: Morgex is an ancient medieval village where history speaks through the architectural details of its noble houses. It seems that in Roman times the ancient village was the center of the administrative life of Valdigne, the vast territory located upstream of the plain of Aosta. Developed along the route of the road that climbed the hill of Petit St. Bernard in nearby France. Morgex was the gateway for transits of armies and pilgrims and trade.
In the Middle Ages, its territory under the jurisdiction of the counts of Savoy, was divided into many small fiefdoms with noble families that have left important evidence as the Tour de l'Archet, the castle Pascal La Ruine Bozel strong and the house at Villa .
In the center of town, next to the nineteenth-century arcades of the municipal building, stands the prestigious parish church of Santa Maria Assunta, recognized since 1910 as a National Monument, is the oldest church building in the entire Valle d'Aosta. Its interior contains furniture and works of art of extraordinary value as the impressive Baroque altar or Romanesque frescoes decorate the chapel down.
The main road that leads back to the church square, is a succession of buildings close to each other, the stone portals, the wrought iron balconies overlooking the entrances  are full of dates and monograms. Precious details to be discovered, tell of a former glory that has persisted through the centuries.
In Morgex history and nature from ancient times have joined forces in shaping the landscape.
