Eglise de Longefoy
This church dates from the end of the 17th century and was consecrated on the 28th August 1687. Its patron saint is Saint Jacques and his festival is on the 25th of July. The internal decorations were re done in 1968.
Beforehand another church was identified to be in its place but facing a different direction.
The construction works were decided during a general assembly of the whole parish. From the 23rd of July the same year an auction was held, and it was determined that the Calligato of Varallo in Italy would be the architect to carry out the works.
At the time of the revolution, the steeple was levelled off by the revolutionaries, it was rebuilt in 1812.
The people of the valley said that the church "descends" as it becomes more and more visible as before you could only distinguish the steeple.
