Religious heritage in Valfréjus and Modane
Black Madonna and oratories in the mountain pastures
The Notre-Dame du Charmaix chapel clings to the cliff and houses a black Madonna said to be miraculous. Let us tell you all about its history during a guided tour offered by a heritage guide in summer and winter alike.
Modane's Notre-Dame de l'Assomption church is a must-see. Rebuilt after the bombings of the Second World War, it boasts majestic 20th-century architecture and large frescoes. In Modane and the surrounding mountain pastures, numerous small chapels and oratories bear witness to the faith of the mountain people.
