Description

The Abbaye d’Hautecombe is St Pierre de Curtille’s historic jewel. A Mecca for spirituality and tourism. Built during the 12th century, it was renovated in 1821 during the reign of Charles Felix, King of Sardinia. The troubadour gothic style church shelters the tombs of the Princes of the Maison de Savoie. Humberto II, the former King of Italy and the last to rest here, was buried in 1983.

Surplombant le lac du Bourget, l'Abbaye royale abrite les sépultures des illustres comtes de Savoie et des derniers rois et reines d'Italie. La visite audio-guidée de l'église permet d'en admirer l'architecture néo-gothique si particulière et ses oeuvres remarquables : fresques, sculptures de marbre... A voir aussi l'exceptionnelle Grange Batelière. Des offices de prières sont proposés chaque jour.
