The castle chapel

The castle chapel


Located in La Jaÿsinia botanic garden, the chapel gets its name from the fact that it was built, in 1687, in the outbuildings of Samoëns' old feudal castle.

Dedicated to Our Lady of Compassion.
Its founder was Reverend Prosper-François de Gex, Dean of the Collegiate Church in Sallanches and brother of Pierre-Antoine de Gex, Baron de Saint-Christophe and Lord of Vallon.
