Aime la Plagne, a rich heritage
Erected on Saint Sigismund's hill, the Pierre Borrione: des Pierres et des hommes archaeological area, former mother church of Aime, is a Museum of France. It bears the name of its founder and patron, doctor and mayor of Aime. This enthusiast was keen to preserve on site the many vestiges of his town's past, and even of the valley. In the town centre, the parish church dedicated to the nativity of the Virgin was built between 1675 and 1678. It has all the characteristics of Baroque art, the principles of which are the consequence of the Counter-Reformation and the Council of Trent.
