A beautiful church to visit in the middle of Annecy. The old wooden pews brings back memories of the old churches of the Middle Ages.

A MUST visit in Annecy are the beautiful churches: St. Francis, St. Pierre and the Notre Dame de Liesse as well as the Basilique de la Visitation. The worship service on the last Sunday of 2013 was full to overflowing and lead beautifully with the melodic voices of the Priest and a nun.

It is a nice little church but there are other churches in Europe that are far grander. This is ok to visit if you don't go out of your way to see it.

A nice walk up the hill. Church has very nice lead light windows. On the walk you pass a lovely little community aid abroad shop. Selling fair trade products and food from third world countries. (I got some nice Bolivian chocolate)

The renovations have made this baroque church into a jewel. It also has interesting concerts from time to time.
