Megève Calvary

A local site of interest set up in a wooded spot is this Way of the Cross, with 15 oratories and chapels along the route, housing frescoes and sculptures. It was created by local craftsmen over the period 1844-1863, thanks to the tenacity of Reverand Martin, a priest from Megève, and is based on that of Jerusalem. The hermitage contains a museum, which charts the construction of Le Calvaire, and the Labo Rando. The whole site, buildings included, was restored between 2001 and 2011.
