  • Huge thanks to kind Valentina at the Tourist office at La Brigue, who showed me these frescoes. Her knowledge and English (and French!) were very good. She is a real asset to the Tourist Centre and...

  • Notre-Dame des Fontaines is built in a remote place at the border of the forests of La Brigue. It has been a halt and a pilgrimage place, for the local population as well as for the many travellers...

  • Unique chapel, an art masterpiece in the French/Italian mountings
  • A wonderful experience! The church doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you step through the door you're dazzled by the amazing frescoes. I loved the painting of Judas. If you can get there, GO. Try to take part in a guided tour, as there's a lot you will miss if you visit alone. All sorts of history and nefarious goings-on can be seen in the context of the paintings. Highly recommended!
