Nearly 100 baroque churches can be found in the villages of France’s eastern Savoie region. During the 17th century, Baroque art went hand in hand with the renewal of the Catholic Church, which was keen to improve its image in the face of a growing Protestant threat. In just a century, the region was sumptuously covered in gold. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover some of these religious treasures.
