Eglise Sainte-Marie : en accès libre

Built in the 11th or 12th century, the church is one of the few in the valley to have preserved important Romanesque remains, recognisable by the small blind arches of the apse and bell tower. Its interior decoration invites you to cross the centuries!

About

Sainte-Marie-de-Cuines (73130)
Unguided individual tours available permanently
Guided individual tours on request

Originally, the door was placed at the base of the bell tower, in the axis of the building. A succession of floods forced it to be walled up and the present entrance to be built on one side of the nave.
Inside, the semi-circular Romanesque apse is hidden by the main altarpiece of 1713, designed as a triumphal arch with twisted columns in which laurel, roses and bunches of grapes are entwined... It forms a partition separating the choir from what has become the sacristy, which is accessible through the two doors on either side of the altar.
