The Hospice du Petit Saint Bernard:
First erected in the 9th century, the hospice is a symbol of a long tradition of
hospitality. It offered food and a bed to any passers-by who risked getting
caught in bad weather. Now renovated, the hospice provides information and
houses an interactive exhibition on the history of the pass.
The Joux column:
Located next to the Hospice, the Joux column is a monolith upon which sits a statue of Saint Bernard of Menthon, patron saint of mountaineers.
