The Loreto Chapel

Chapelle de Lorette
Chemin de Lorette 5
1722 Bourguillon

The belvedere of this baroque-style sanctuary built by Jean-François Reyff in 1648 offers the most beautiful view of Fribourg's old town.

This baroque chapel is one of the most successful creations of Jean-François Reyff, the versatile artist from Fribourg who was a sculptor, architect and fortifications engineer. His Virgin Marys are recognisable by their pensive, gentle faces.

The baroque chapel (1647-1689), a down-to-size replica of the Santa Casa de Loreto, Italy, towers over the old part ot town.

Open only from March to October:
Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

The little train of Fribourg stops at the Loreto Chapel for 5 min. from April to October
