The chapel is dedicated to Saint-François-de-Sales et Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal. It was built in 1784, to commemorate a rockslide that fortunately made no casualties. The chapel is built on a huge stone (520 m3 / 680 cu yd).
Located in the heart of mountain pastures in summer and skiing area in winter, the chapel was built in the 1960s, on a rock that was called in ancient times "the wolves stone" or the "cursed stone".
