The Swiss Alps comprise almost all the highest mountains of the Alps, such as Dufourspitze (4,634 m), the Dom (4,545 m), the Liskamm (4,527 m), the Weisshorn (4,506 m) and the Matterhorn (4,478 m).
Since the Middle Ages, transit across the Alps played an important role in history. The region north of St. Gotthard Pass became the nucleus of the Swiss Confederacy in the early 14th century.
