Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne (73300)

Part of the Notre-Dame church was damaged during the destruction of its bell tower. The destruction is still visible on the east face. They are now separated by a street. Its condition does not allow it to be opened to the public, however it occasionally hosts exhibitions visible from the windows located at the bottom.
