Our churches

Churches
Each village on the route of the Chemin des Blés has its church, miraculously spared since the Middle Ages in some cases, sometime rebuilt after the Reformation.

Medieval remains
About thirty, nine churches have kept, in varying degrees, all or part of their medieval architecture. For example, the churches of Granges-Marnand or Treytorrens.

Bernese influence
Other buildings, dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, are witnesses of architectural trends imported into the Pays de Vaud by the Bernese sovereign.

The Reformation
Many buildings rebuilt in the 19th or even 20th century are vast predication rooms where certain principles inherited from the Reformation have been reproduced.

For more information, our guide "From temples to chapels on the Way of Wheat", by Philippe Jaton, with the collaboration of F. Hoffmann and I. Andrey to the Society of Art History in Switzerland (SHAS) editions will bring many interesting details, allowing to see these churches with a sharper eye.
