Le Chemin du Calvaire, Megeve

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. Plan to see Le Chemin du Calvaire and other attractions that appeal to you using our Megeve trip maker app .

  • great ballad from the gondola of Mont d Arbois (easier downhill) with magnificent chapels throughout the course, with a splendid view of Megève and the surrounding mountains.

  • very friendly with views on the surrounding area and the center of Megève, much of small chapels, with a heavy snowfall, which is very beautiful

  • It is a path of about 20 minutes, more or less long depending on the atmospheric conditions that winds on the mountain. There is a very nice point of view and we can inquire about history interesting that was build 14 calvaries (chapels) of different architectures of different sizes. It's very nice and typical but climb may also be a hassle if there is no breath and you walk too fast :)
