Chapel de Bionnay

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Chapel, Baroque in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
  • The chapel in Bionnay is found on the road to Piémont through the Bonhomme Pass. It is a very important passageway in the valley.

  • Today, the interior of the chapel is rather sparse. Its pillars and groined vaults are quaintly highlighted by murals. The elegant alter painting, by Decret
    de Bonneville, depicts The Virgin Annunciate.
  • History, culture and heritage
    The chapel was rebuilt between 1775 and 1777 by local architect Joachim Gualino, who also created the altar and altarpiece. Built against the
    Mont-Blanc massif, it was miraculously spared from the famous 1892 catastrophe.
