Espace Glacialis

The Saint Sigismond baroque church & stroll streets

With a guide, discover the history of Champagny through a ride and the splendor of Baroque art, Saint Sigsimond church steeple like "Tower of Pisa".

An altarpiece in 1710 by  Jacques Clérant & Jean-Baptiste Gualaz and not requiring less than one hundred fully gilded cherubs.
Framed between two columns mixed with caryatids, in the center of the altarpiece, a high relief evokes the Virgin Assumption contemplated by Saint Sigismund and martyr Virgin: the sculpture is a virtuosity of movement and the execution details. On the entablature, angels have acrobatic positions.

In the nave is also an altarpiece of the Rosary in 1662 and attributed to François Cuénot from Chambéry.
