Switzerland, famous for a number of the finer things in life, from its cheese to its chocolate, its mountains to its lakes. Historically, this alpine territory was once a centre for mining gold. The precious metal was once rife through the alps, giving local alpine villages like Gondo a thriving mining industry.
