From shadow to light, a completely baroque experience! - sensory visit

More than a visit to the chapel and the church, it is an encounter with those who built, decorated and visited them that Christelle, heritage guide, offers you. And believe us, seen from the 17th century, it sheds a whole new light!

A quarter of an hour is generally the time it takes participants to find themselves back some 400 years. At the time when the inhabitants of isolated hamlets had no other solution than to rely on God and invoke his saints, to be protected from food shortages, epidemics, avalanches and other natural calamities. When you are there, the painted decorations of the Saint Antoine chapel should have a funny effect on you.
And that's nothing compared to what awaits you in the heart of the Saint Jean Baptiste church. Luckily for you, you won't be alone. Christelle, your guide, and all the mountaineers and artists of yesteryear will be there to give meaning to this timeless experience. From the one that warms the heart and makes you see life in color, makes you vibrate and elevates you, until you touch paradise.
It is the Baroque effect, a flamboyant art that has enabled generations of mountaineers to keep their faith. And which, even today, continues to make believers.
