Presentation

In 1991, the project to build a pipe organ in the parish church was launched.
Its construction was entrusted to Mr. Barthélémy FORMENTELLI, organ builder near Verona, Italy. He made the entire instrument himself, including the pipes and the sculptures.
In 1996, this organ of 22 stops was therefore installed, which represents 1372 pipes. It is equipped with 2 keyboards and a complete pedal board. It is adorned with a hand-carved walnut sideboard in the Italian neo-baroque style.

Four criteria contribute to the desirability of a quality instrument:
The liturgical, cultural aspect
The educational aspect, with the organization of concerts and student training
The tourist aspect with a better musical structure to allow quality cultural activities and a typical instrument contributing to the influence of the town and the resort
The heritage aspect, the instrument blending perfectly into the building and constituting a quality heritage to be passed on to future generations

To help you discover this marvelous instrument, the Campanelli Association, responsible for bringing this admirable instrument to life, invites you to tours of the organ and to concerts.
Période(s) d'ouverture(s)Open all year round, daily. Concerts every thursday from 19th July to 16th August.
