About

Montagny (73350)

You can observe the Baroque art in its altarpiece: colorful, gilded, with chubby cherubs and unfinished cornice. The painting features Saint Etienne, Saint Marguerite of Antioche, Saint Roch and Saint Sébastien looking piously at the Visitation scene.

You can see a little wooden statue of the Virgin and Child covered in gold leaf.
The bell tower with its 40cm hole diameter bell is on the top of the southern front. It has the effigies of the Virgin crossing her arms on her chest and Christ on the cross . It was melted in 1895 as the one from Villard Chapel by Georges and Francisque Paccard, famous smelters in Annecy-le-Vieux.

The present Way of the Cross was built by the priest, Charles Maurice Emprin with all the villagers gathered for the ceremony. After the blessing some paintings and crosses were carried in procession all around the village !
