Rivaz Chapel

Rivaz Chapel, which dates from 1488, was acquired in 1602 by Beat-Jacob of Neuchâtel, Lord of Gorgier (NE), who made it a burial chapel for his family. From 1622, the chapel was ministered by a community of Minim Friars, and later by a community of Christian Brothers who resided in Motte-Châtel. Built on the lakeshore, the chapel was a place of pilgrimage for local fishermen.
