    St. Peter is the titular of the church and St. Paul the patron of the parish.
    The church is one of the best endowed in the Oisans, partly thanks to the donations of rich donors such as Jacques Rochette and peddlers who made their fortune.
    The bell tower houses the oldest bell found in the Oisans, dating from 1622.
