In Hauteluce valley every hamlet has his own chapel. The frame & steeple architecture are remarkable.
Very nice little chapel located in the typical St Sauveur hamlet.
This church, located in the village centre, will dazzle you with its stunning interior and exterior. You'll be stunned by its amazing decorative elements, from its bell tower with bulb-shaped dome to its gilt altarpieces.
This baroque church is famous for its steeple that we call "clocher à bulbe". This monument is dedicated to St Jacques d'Assyrie (1st évêque of Tarentaise).
From the time of its foundation in 1658, this chapel was dedicated to St John the Baptist and integrated with the parish of Crest-Voland, despite its distance from the village. Its ruins were rebuilt around 1752.
From its little hill this lovely chapel seems to take care of the valley.
This romane style chapel was built in the 7th century. It is rated as historical monument. It is located in Belleville hamlet at the end of Hauteluce valley.
