In the centre of Courmayeur (in the church square) there is the House of the Alpine Guides, a building which has been a symbol of their activity, since 1850, when the adventure of Italian mountaineering started. Inside there is the “Alpine Museum Duca degli Abruzzi” where you can relive great adventures of the past and travel in time retracing a legendary story. The museum houses a rich collection of relics, souvenirs and instruments that testify to epic mountaineering challenges but also to the daily hard work of the guides and the birth of mountain rescue in the Aosta Valley.
