  • Formerly called the Church of Saint-Maurice or even today Church of the cloister (because a Priory-monks of Saint-Maurice?-was associated with him before his destruction in 1528 following the Reformation), this temple belongs today to the Evangelical Reformed Church of Canton of Vaud. Archaeological excavations conducted in 1899 have updated the foundations of an earlier Romanesque-style church with a rectangular nave and a semicircular apse. Under the leadership of Bern, the Church was rebuilt in the Gothic style; the Bernese coats of arms were painted (1662) on the vault of the choir. The Bell Tower, of Romanesque origin, is topped with an octagonal stone Spire, typical of the Rhone Valley. One of the four bells, from different eras, would date from 1430. Like the Château d'Aigle, the Church of the cloister is inscribed on the list of Swiss cultural properties classified as national importance. Finally, the Church of the cloister represents one of the 79 stages of the via Francigena, a great road of faith of some 2000 km, going from Canterbury, to the South of England, crossing France and Switzerland, before joining Rome in Italy.

  • Old walls in a historical setting including mystical, charming atmosphere. Behind the church there is a small, quiet garden.
