Religious heritage in Haute Maurienne Vanoise
Saint-Pierre d'Extravache...the first church in Savoy
In every village and hamlet, you'll find a chapel, church, oratory and crosses dotting the landscape right up to the highest altitudes.
Baroque gold, altarpieces and painted decorations can be seen everywhere, adorning the interiors of these buildings. Push open the doors of the churches and take advantage of the guided tours to admire their splendor and learn about their history.
The fervor of believers is perpetuated by Marian feasts and pilgrimages. The Haute Maurienne Vanoise region is very attached to its traditions!
