Number 12 of the historical tour
As an order committed to poverty, the Capuchins built simple churches. The sanctuary that they built in Romont after their arrival in 1727 is no exception and was meticulously erected. The altars, inlaid, sculpted and decorated with paintings, are among the most stunning liturgical furnishings in the canton. The paintings depict Franciscan Saints, as do the haracters in the frescoes in the nave.
The Capuchins left the convent in 1979. The church currently serves as a cultural venue.
