Esprit des lieux
Discovering the sacred sites of Fribourg Region.
The region of Fribourg, a land of Christian tradition, has an immense heritage of sacred buildings. Whether they are well-known or modest, these buildings are admirable and deserve admiration. The history of these stones begins a dialogue with the 21st century visitor. Their beauty soothes us and raises us up.
Other places also lift the spirits: places where we simply feel good, where everyday life disappears to give way to inwardness. These natural sites are a supreme luxury, often offering exceptional tranquillity.
In the region of Fribourg there is a wealth of places with striking spiritual value. We were therefore spoilt for choice. Criteria such as quality, tourist interest, space, etc. were considered in making the selection. Our list is by definition incomplete and imperfect. We want to make your mouth water and encourage you to explore... what lies beyond!
-" We do not need religion to live.
- Perhaps not religion. But spirituality, yes."
