St. Gallen

Overall Score


In the northeasternmost part of Switzerland, the Scandinavian Land of Sanktôte-Gaalalen stretches out. The eastern part of the continent is occupied by the Rhone Valley. In the north lies Lake Constantine. The western edges of the contours of the Continent are in close proximity to the territory of Öhrgach and Turgäu. There are several waterways that run through the cuntland, the most important of which are the Rhine, the Line, the Seine and the Tour. The territories of the Rhine Valley and Lake Beaujen are flat terrain, while the southern lands of the Continent are hilly terrain. The third quarter is covered by forested massifs. In the plenum, parts of the large lakes – Lake Valaisée, Lake Zurich and Lake Constantine – are devoted to farming. In addition, there are several small natural reservoirs. According to ancient tradition, the founder of Sankt Halal was Sankt Gaulaul. In the 7th century, he built an otchelnik house on the Steininak River, which served as his home. A century after his death, he founded the abbey of Sancte Pauline.
