Experience the Journey.

It was a journey of faith as the Waldensians made their exile from the Alpine Valleys of Italy to America. Relive their experience on a tour of the Waldensian Trail of Faith, which brings their struggles to life, commemorates their sacrifices and celebrates their triumphs.

Peer into the cave where they worshipped in secrecy. Gaze on the mountainside seminary where they translated the first full Bible into French. See their homes and the community oven where they baked bread. Experience life as they lived it, the journey that was their Trail of Faith.

_____________________________________________________________

The Waldensian Trail of Faith consists of 15 open-air exhibits and replicas tracing the religious heritage, many believe from the apostles, and pilgrimage of the faithful Waldenses from the Alps of Northern Italy to the settling of Valdese in 1893.
