Historic site and monument Saint Pierre Chapel, Le Villaret Peisey-Nancroix


Peisey-Nancroix (73210)

The chancel is sheltered behind a beautiful turned wood grate.
The central altarpiece is occupied by a picture which represents the coronation of the Virgin by the trinity, with Saint Peter, Saint-Paul and Saint Barthelemy (carrying his own skin on his right hand and a butcher knife. Barthelemy was one of the twelve apostles. Tortured to death, skinned alive. He is the patron saint of the tanners: the tanneries of the valley were settled at le Villaret.)
The decoration of the chapel is in red and blue tones, with many angels.
On sides: saint François de Sales, patron saint of Savoy,
Saint Jean the evangelist, with the eagle at his feet.
Above on the left: Saint-Maurice of Agaune, patron saint of the House of Savoy, to the right: saint Michel bringing down the dragon.
We shall notice the beautiful beam of glory with the crucifixion, Saint Marie and Saint Jean.
