An interir view of the refectory of the Great St Bernard Hospice, in which several figures eat and converse. There has been a hostel at the Great St Bernard Pass since the 9th century, built for the protection of travellers crossing the alps. It was at the hospice that the St Bernard dog breed was created, bred to help with mountain rescues in the treacherous terrain.
