St Jean-Baptiste Church of Taninges

A monumental church by its size but also by its history !
Built between 1824 and 1834 by the architect Prosper Dunant, the St Jean-Baptiste church is from the last architectural style of the States of Savoy : neo-classic Sardinian. Before, it was the biggest of the diocese of Annecy : 58 m length, 27 m wide and 18 m height.
The facade of the building looks austere with few ornaments, but inside there is a profusion of decoration : paintings on the vault and pillars, stalls, carved wood and multicolored stained glasses.

The visitor will visit a religious building and will discover how the jacquemarde population was decorating its churches there during the XIXth century.
