The Arêches Church

Credit : otab

The Church of St. John the Baptist of Arêches is a fine homogeneous example of Savoyard Baroque art and deserves a visit. Basilica- shaped, with a particularly bright altarpiece, the interior of the church creates a surprising contrast with the exterior.
The main structure of the church was completed in 1829; its rich and sumptuous interior decoration from Italy took several years to complete. The bulbous steeple, traditional in Savoie, was built around the same time. One must note the importance of images that gave the faithful easy access to the Bible, the life of the Virgin, Christ and the Saints who were seen as intermediaries of God.
