1 Grenette de Boege
The "grenette" in Boëge was used to weigh grain and press fruit until 1853. The grain was weighed in the stone scales. It is now listed as a Monument Historique.
2 Chapelle Notre-Dame des Voirons
Perched on the ridge between earth and sky, this Gothic chapel has all the necessary components to be a perfect place for contemplation.<br/>The chapel of Notre Dame des Voirons was built in the 15th century, with its back to a rock that climbs higher still and is the source of a little spring. This gothic chapel has all the right elements to make it a place for contemplation.
Located 10 minutes on foot from the monastery, you can reach the recently restored Notre-Dame des Voirons, whose interior has recently been restored, via a woodland path. The chapel is worth the detour in itself, not just for its decor, which is exemplary in its rustic restraint, nor for its attendance, as it is rarely visited. It is worth the visit because, unlike many other religious buildings, this chapel has soul.
There are no ornaments or paintings. It is simply decorated with a statue of the Virgin Mary (Black Madonna, of course), a plain, stone altar and basic furnishings. This simple rectangular stone Gothic chapel measures around 15 metres in length and provides a serene space for those in search of silence and inner peace.
3 Habère-Lullin château ruins
The château dates back to the 15th century. The Marquis de Lullin built the Gothic castle which has retained its style despite construction work up to the 17th century.<br/>In December 1943, the château saw a tragic event. A group of young people organised a ball for Christmas Eve. The Germans received information of this and, believing them to be members of the Resistance, attacked the church. The château was set on fire and all the men were shot. Only the women were spared. Now, all that's left are a few walls and a monument in memory of the young men.
