Le Chemin du Calvaire, Megeve

4.6
#2 of 16 in Things to do in Megeve
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Stunning views and a unique curiosity. A fairly steep incline leads you up to a series of chapels & churches. Well worth the small detour from the centre of Megève.  more »

  • Affordable prices, ultra friendly and present for the service, boss is homemade, including the plateau of pies the day that sits at the entrance, made during the afternoon, very warm atmosphere, all in a unique place, away from the "excitement" of the village. A truly timeless moment, a must to be missed if you go to Geneva! The little extra? Sales exhibitions of local artists.
