The bells are replaced by the "tapolets", just before Easter. Today, that ritual is very rare in Switzerland and is only practiced in Grimentz (VS), Cressier (FR), in Rue and in Romont (FR).

From Holy Thursday to Holy Saturday, we pretend the bells go to Roma and leave the bell towers silent. In both medieval cities (Rue and Romont), to replace them we use strange instruments equipped with a crank handle which lifts wood hammers: the "tapolets".

In Rue the children are walking through the streets of the small city with their “tapolets”. They become candies from the inhabitants.
