The Loreto Chapel
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:
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Open also during religious holidays
The little train of Fribourg stops at the Loreto Chapel for 5 min. from April to October
