Follow St. James' way through la Glâne (S)


From Fribourg, follow in the footsteps of the pilgrims of St-Jacques de Compostelle to Romont, the Swiss capital of stained glass windows and glass. Here, in the Glâne region, you’ll find out how this town made a name for itself in this delicate craft.

Due to its many richly decorated churches, the delightful city of Romont protected by its ramparts became the stained glass capital. A notable example is the Notre-Dame de l’Épine chapel found on this very route. Plus, the recently modernised Vitromusée housed in the mediaeval castle of Romont traces the history and techniques of this know-how through an interactive exhibition.

A few minutes from Romont, Mézières Castle houses an exhibition of another delicate and little known art: wallpaper. The rare pieces on display and specialist temporary exhibitions are well worth a visit. For a breath of fresh air after these cultural discoveries, stop off at Gibloux. Surrounded by a network of footpaths, the tower affords stunning views of La Gruyère region, from April to October.

Return to Fribourg via a magical spiritual location, Hauterive Abbey. In a lush green setting, on the banks of the Sarine, the sacred place welcomes visitors respectful of the monastic silence.
