Last time I visited in Sept 2012, the church was dark, gloomy and under some kind of restoration. This visit, it was absolutely glorious - light, spotlessly clean, full of space, modern furniture but, not out of place in a very ancient building. The light coming through the glass, cast wonderful rainbows on the new floorboards and furniture. It now... More

This is a church built by the Dominicans in the 15th century. Currently closed for renovation the church is unique in that many of the side chapels were built by local nobles. In addition the church is recognized for the trompe d'oeil 15th century painting that sits to the left of the choir.

This church, which supposedly is quite attractive inside, is at present (May, 2015) under wraps and cannot be entered due to restorations.

A calm place to visit for a few minutes of peace. Not as over the top as some lavish French churches and none the worse for it. It appeared to be always open even for locals who took their dogs inside with them.

A quiet church right in the middle of town, a bit dark and not much going on inside but it is a nice little escape from all the noise and bussle of the centre of town right next to it. Also right next to the main road but doesn't matter much. Worth a pop in if walking through annecy as... More

This rather dark church is a quiet place close to the main road through the city, the town hall ("hotel de ville" or "mairie") and the crowded Pont Perrière. There are some medieval paintings, a beautiful pulpit and an organ from the 19th century. From the Saint Maurice church, you can walk to the castle, the cathedral, or the lake... More

A peaceful and tranquil church - as they should be! But this felt like a well used and loved place, not quite as 'awesome' as some other churches. It has a character of its own.
