3 must-see places to visit this summer in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville


We share with you our selection of 3 must-see places in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville. Zoom on the discovery of the emblematic treasures of the Belleville territory 👀

1. Notre-Dame-de-la-Vie 

Located between Saint-Martin-de-Belleville and the hamlet of Saint Marcel, Notre-Dame-de-la-Vie is a 17th century baroque chapel classified as a Historical Monument in 1949. The site has been a place of pilgrimage since the 13th century and to this day in Savoie. The sobriety of the exterior building contrasts with the richness of the gold-covered and flamboyantly colored altarpieces found inside.

2. Burdin Mill

The Mill of Burdin is a perfectly preserved witness of the agro-pastoral activity in the Belleville Valley. Intended to grind the crops grown by the inhabitants, it is a water mill typical of mountain areas, activated by a system of horizontal wheels called "fins". Guided tours are offered free of charge to discover the history, the mechanism and the way the mill used to work.
Located about a 30 minutes walk from the village of Saint Marcel, you can reach it by taking a pleasant walk along the Doron river.
