Le Chemin du Calvaire, Megeve
(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Le Chemin du Calvaire on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Megeve vacation route planner.

  • Walk along a very steep path, not being ideal for small children or older people, but it's worth the possibility of beautiful scenery.

  • A very nice relaxing time for this walk between fields and small chapelles.a do when we're on Megève. Take a stroll in the garden and enjoy a drink halfway. easier to descend than to climb.

  • In my opinion has a descent for the "small terms" physical but also for the view of the surrounding mountains and the Valley of Arly not to mention the view on the village (in season - Megeve Mt d'Arbois shuttles start the Calvary) passage a calvary for a pot farm, lunch, dinner is also worth a visit (which isn't a = on the way in the middle of the main chapels)
