Cohennoz church


Originally Cohennoz was part of the parish of Héry-sur-Ugine, up until it obtained its independence in 1766. The church was built in the village centre in 1781 and dedicated to St Pierre-aux-Liens.

The church in Cohennoz has a distinct charm, largely because of its isolated location and the curios it houses.
It is a modest building, still standing in its graveyard.
Its design is simple, with just one nave and no pillars, topped with quite a simple bell tower.
Inside, the space is decorated and furnished in abundant fashion.
The white walls are decorated with geometric, symbolic and floral patterns whilst the beams are coloured red and blue. There are no murals or paintings.
The church furniture is eclectic. The cabinet of holy oils is baroque in style. The pulpit is very lovely. Several of the statues date from the 19th century.
The modest altar is made from white and pink marble. The side altars are more ornate, dedicated to the Virgin and Child and to St François de Sales. Reliquaries stand in front of the altars.


Throughout the year : open daily from 9 AM to 7 PM.
