Church Notre-Dame de l'Assomption - Bramans

Located between Bramans and Le Verney, two villages in the same municipality, this church does not, however, do by half measures! Although completely rebuilt, it still offers its furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries due to local artists.

Guided individual tours on request

Prides of the country, the baroque furniture adorning the building, rebuilt between 1936 and 1938 due to the instability of the gypsum ground, were mostly made by artists from the village or the valley. Observe the majestic main altarpiece where the vine and its grapes are wrapped around twisted columns which soar towards a flamboyant canopy!
Raise your eyes and look at the beam of colored glory that separates the nave from the choir: it is said to have been offered in gratitude to the Virgin by an inhabitant of the village who had lost himself in the old iron mines of Colombière. , in the Bramans mountains… What an adventure!
Nearby, the chapel of the Congregation is located between the presbytery and the parish hall.
