The Calvary Way
The Megève Calvary, with chapels depicting scenes of Christ’s Passion and located between the village centre and the Mont d’Arbois Plateau, is one of the only in France to be listed as a European Sacred Mount and Historic Monument.
Megeve's Historical Centre
Megeve has retained all the charm of a blooming and authentic Savoyard village, nestling around its medieval style main square, old quarters, narrow streets and welcoming little squares livened up with fountains and wash houses.
The chapels in the hamlets
Most of Megève’s chapels were erected during the XV11 century, on the initiative of the clergy fighting the Reformation, incited by the need to establish a place of worship in each hamlet, and affirm the identity of each.
These oratories of the Rosary are situated all along the main road (RN), before entering Megève, and lead to the Cretets Chapel.
Chapelle du Maz
There are still a dozen chapels in Megève out of twenty that date back to before the Revolution. Dedicated to Saint Bartholomew and Saint Clair, the Maz Chapel was built in 1614 and rebuilt in 1772.
