Die dem Heiligen Pierre-aux-Liens geweihte Kirche La Giettaz wurde Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts als Ersatz für das mittelalterliche Gebäude wieder aufgebaut. Sein bauchiger Glockenturm und seine Möbel machen ihn zu einem schönen Beispiel für den späten savoyischen Barock.
The first church in the village was built at the very end of the 14th century. Imagine, before this construction, the Giettois went to mass, risking their lives in winter, in Flumet for the inhabitants of the village, and in Megève for the inhabitants of the hamlet of Plan!
If the exterior is admirable by the presence of the majestic onion bell tower with two lanterns, the interior of the vast building derives its originality from its Greek cross plan: this choice allowed the construction of a central dome, which was decorated with frescoes. in 1848. Raise your eyes to the sky: restored in the spring of 1999, their colors await your eyes!
In 1732, a sculpted altarpiece was installed, paid for by the Giettois who had emigrated to Paris.
The current major altarpiece, from 1849, partially reuses this old decor (the pale green part with the twisted columns), so it retains the vitality born of the Baroque spirit.
