Christianity was organized in Tarentaise at the beginning of the 5th century. It is from this period that probably dates the first cathedral whose history did not leave us any traces. On the same site, several buildings succeeded one another until the 11th century. Lombard masons were then called. These craftsmen from the north of Italy were going to make a name for themselves from the shores of the Mediterranean to England or to Germany for some.
The architecture includes a Romanesque choir from the 11th century, a Gothic façade from the 15th century, and neo-classical naves. Among the many artistic works, we can mention the burial of the 16th century, a remarkable polychrome sculptural group of life size.
