About

La Forclaz (74200)
Unguided individual tours on request

The stripped-back style of the renovated interior contrasts with the works of contemporary artists: a ceramic mural created by Jacint Salvado, and the baptismal font and tabernacle created by François Hugo, grandson of Victor Hugo. All that remains of the 19th-century Baroque decoration are the two gilded wooden statues of the Virgin Mary and Saint François de Sales and the pink La Vernaz marble stoup, which sets off the red Italian marble floor.
