Baroque art was born in the 16th century to honour God and revive Christian faith.
With around 80 buildings constructed in this unique style, baroque is a particular feature of the Alps and the Savoiedépartement.
Along the Baroque Trail of Les 3 Vallées!
The chemin du Paradis
This loop connects Le Praz, Saint-Bon and Le Freney. Make sure you don’t miss the baroque church in Saint-Bon. Built in the 17th century on the site of the former 14th century Roman church, it is part of the Baroque Trail®. In Courchevel Le Praz, head to the square where you’ll find a 15th century chapel dedicated to Sainte Marie-Madeleine. As for the hamlet of Le Freney, it has preserved its chapel, dedicated to Sainte Anne and built in 1680.
The village circuit
Set off from the centre of Méribel and walk down towards Raffort, going through Mussillon along the way. Choose from two different routes, both inviting you to discover the valley’s rich heritage, including Chapelle Saint Jacques and the old chalets, the mill, the narrow old streets and barns in Chandon, the cowsheds in Le Cruet and the baroque church in Les Allues.
