Chapelle St-Antoine Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Frescoes on the theme of the Virtues and Vices - in poor condition - decorate the outside of the 14C chapel. Inside, however, other frescoes on two levels, illustrating Christ's life, are in a much better state of preservation. The way the characters are dressed points to the 15C. Note that the settings are inspired by landscapes of the Bessans region. The Renaissance coffered ceiling, decorated with stars, dates from 1526.
