Baroque Church of Saint Nicolas de Véroce

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Church, listed, Baroque, Classical, Neo-Classical in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
  • The church of Saint-Nicolas is one of the crown jewels of Alpine Baroque art.
    It was built during the first half of the 18th Century using funds provided by expatriates and colporteurs going to the German Low Country.

  • Characteristic of the Alpine Baroque with its sober exterior and its interior bursting with colour, gilding and cherubs, the church of St. Nicholas is an enchantment for the eyes. Known for its "Saint-Nicolas blue", which gives rhythm to the vaults entirely painted in the 19th century, its five polychrome carved wooden altarpieces and its unsuspected trompe-l'oeil, the interior of the building gives the word magnificence its full meaning!
