THE COMMUNE OF MONTVALEZAN
The commune of Montvalezan is located in the heart of the French Alps, in the Savoie department. The commune is made up of 44 hamlets, with 705 year-round inhabitants and 12,00 touristic beds in La Rosière-Espace San Bernardo.
For many years, the commune’s liveliest village, especially on Sundays, was its administrative centre, Montvalezan village. The parish includes a tower, a vicarage and a church. A designated Monument Historique (Historic Monument), the tower was built in 1674. It was an annexe of the Petit-Saint-Bernard hospice, which was temporarily frequented by canons.
Saint Jean-Baptiste church is open to the public every Thursday in July and August, from 4pm to 6pm
The commune’s 14 chapels are well-known heritage sites. These chapels were built by our ancestors as a thank you for a blessing received or simply as a place where they could express their faith or talk about their life, their sufferance and their hopes.
