Chapel of the Chattrix

The Chapel of the Chattrix is one of the Baroque gems in the Montjoie Valley. It was built in 1694 and reworked between 1720 and 1723 through a donation from the Genamy brothers—peddlers originally from Saint-Nicolas who prospered and became merchants in Vienna, Austria.
The Chapel of the Chattrix is one of the Baroque gems in the Montjoie Valley. It was built in 1694 and reworked between 1720 and 1723 through a
donation from the Genamy brothers—peddlers originally from Saint-Nicolas who prospered and became merchants in Vienna, Austria. Saint Donat and
Saint Leonard are its patron saints.
Classified as a historical monument in 1976, the chapel is decorated with a beautiful painted façade: vases of flowers, finials, inscriptions in the
cartouches, and trompe-l'oeil architectural elements.
The interior of the chapel contains beautifully preserved painted decorations on the walls, reflecting the images on the façade, as well as sculptures in
the choir and ten18th-century paintings.
