Its singular location means that its small bell tower points, even more than others, into the sky. Enter through the small vestibule and you will see that another colorful world will surprise you inside this small building!


The vestibule, as in all the churches of the Maurienne, protects the faithful from the direct passage of the fresh air from outside. It is better to protect the faithful from the cold, which can be icy at this altitude, even if in winter the building has even more charm, topped with white and placed on a coat of snow...
Perched on its promontory, this small church is a jewel of originality full of exceptions: the flowery decorations of its vault - painted with a stencil, the trompe-l'oeil of the choir, the confessional worked in pine wood... Even the handle of its entrance portal: this one, nicely chiseled, is classified as a historical monument! And the building still contains so many other things to discover.
Simplicity, colors and perfection, this is what awaits you in the Saint-Laurent church!
