Church of Saint-Jean à Cour - a church unlike the others

The detailed visit of this church of which the architecture has been directly inspired by the first paleo-christian basilicas will help you to discover the remarkable fresco of the apse and the decoration influenced by the Renaissance. It is an exceptional example of joint spiritual and artistic influence.

Doctor Albert Schweitzer designed the organ.

St Jean de Cour P1000374 200This church was built thanks to the generosity of Marguerite de Loÿs-Chandieu, the Chatelain of Dorigny. She wanted a place in keeping with the principles of Pasteur Jules Amiguet who gathered many people together. His ministry like all his publications were mainly influenced by study of ancient Christian liturgies.

This church shows the complete works of the Vaudois painter, Louis Rivier, whose 100th anniversary of his birth was celebrated in 2013.
