The chapel in Le Bérouze

The chapel in Le Bérouze


Dedicated to the Apostles, Peter and Paul, this chapel was built using stone from the ruins of a chapel erected at Col de Couz in 1468 and demolished in 1476 when Swiss troops invaded the Faucigny area.

Built in the square at Le Bérouze in 1481, it underwent restoration in 1660, a fact recorded in the Latin inscription on its West Front, "Nobleman Bernard Ducis fortunately renovated me at his expense in the year of Our Lord 1660".
The chapel lost its bell during the French Revolution but a new one was hung in 1824.


Free access.
