Church Saint-Jean Baptiste de Viuz

Website
Info

The church Saint-Jean Baptiste de Viuz located next to the archaeological museum is the result of 6 construction periods starting from the 1st to the 19th century. Well known by researchers, its Romanesque choir and archaeological crypt are what made it a famous reference.

The church holds remains of a gallo-roman building in its archaeological crypt as well as 3 churches from the 6th, 9th and 11th centuries. The current building is made of a Romanesque choir (ISMH) from the 12th century adorned with green molasse capitals decorated with water flowers and baroque stalls dating back to 1696. The baptismal fonts also date back to the 17th century. The neoclassical collaterals are the product of the last major restoration works (1827/1842). The whole represents an exceptional piece of architecture, the only one of its kind in Savoie.
