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.
