Le Chemin du Calvaire, Megeve

4.6
#2 of 19 in Historic Sites in Haute-Savoie
Fourteen chapels and oratories represent Christ's passion at Le Chemin du Calvaire. This pilgrimage site, constructed by Ambroise Martin, was built to simulate Jesus Christ's suffering on Calvary in Jerusalem. Walking to the site gives time for quiet meditation, but to get inside the chapels, you'll need to arrange for a tour guide. On your way out, look for "Le refuge du Calvaire," a small restaurant with a terrace.

    Nice place with a great meal the staff and very pleasant. The bucolic setting in the middle of the prairies and goats have enchanted children.

    A walk at all without difficulty. The chapels have been well restored, but deserve a regular internal maintenance. The various scenes of the cross of Christ are sometimes visible. The tasty and refreshing break at the restaurant-bar of the Calvary shelter is recommended.

    This walk is clearly soothing, relaxing and rejuvenating its very nice framework. The path is private, quiet, surrounded by trees and flowers, as well as a lot of mountain animals. Finally the view at the top is splendid: ideal to make pretty pictures of holiday

    The place is aptly named. It is indeed a "Calvary". The food is really bad. The products are of poor quality and poorly cooked. While bathing in the fat, not quite cooked, in short, to avoid. Long waits for service. The only positive point is the view.

    Just excellent! Beautiful setting, traditional Savoyard cuisine with splendid view of Megève. Friendly and warm atmosphere. In conclusion: restaurant on top!
