At the summit of the magnificent Monts Voirons with views of Mont-Blanc, come and visit the Notre Dame des Voirons Monastery, the chapel and Petites soeurs de Bethléem's art studios.
Les Voirons was already a cult site for the Allobroges and Romans. Lord Louis de Langin founded the first chapel here in the 15th century, housing the black Virgin and called it Notre Dame des Voirons. The chapel then became a pilgrim site and welcomed Saint François de Sales in 1595. Following a fire, the black Virgin is now kept in the Boëge Church. In 1967 the first Soeurs de Béthléem nuns came to Les Voirons. There are now 100 of them.
PĂ©riode d'ouvertureEvery day throughout the year between 1 PM and 4.30 PM.
Closed Monday and Sunday.
