The Chapelle du Tour is a Catholic Chapel located in the heart of the hamlet of Le Tour at the north-eastern end of the Chamonix Valley. The chapel dates back to 1865 and it is dedicated to Saint Bernard de Menthon and Saint Ours. The chapel has a beautiful blue ceiling and a gated altar area with two rows of benches on either side.


The Chapelle is near the main street and parking of Le Tour and you will pass it by if you start on the Petit Balcon Nord in the direction of Le Planet. We couldnt really get a feel for when the chapel is open and when it is locked. So I guess you will just have to get lucky during your visit.
