Sentier de la Superga
Built on a small hill in Longefoy, the chapel can be seen from the valley and is well worth a visit and a short detour. It was built in 1853 and is a small copy of the famous La Superga sanctuary near Turin.
The plateau at the foot of the chapel was once a marsh with mosquitoes and other animals that brought disease to the village.
In 1860, the people of Longefoy planted the tallest tree of the forest close to the chapel, that can be seen all the way from the Petit St Bernard pass.
