Churches and chapels

A dozen chapels and prayer houses around Zermatt bear witness to the popular piety here in former times. Until well into the 20th Century, many local families lived the lives of nomads: during the summer, they lived in the various hamlets that surround the village of Zermatt and only returned to the village at the start of winter. It’s therefore not surprising that each mountain community built its own chapel in order to be close to God in a place of worship during the summer.
