Slightly upstream from the village centre of Aymavilles, along the road that leads to Cogne, the church with its characteristic “trompe-l’oeil” façade, in its current forms, dates back to 1762, but the belltower originates from the previous building, on it there is a rare fourteenth century bell.
In the basement it conceals a small crypt, which is attributed to the 9th-10th century.
The relative parish was separated from the other one of Aymavilles, dedicated to Saint-Martin, at the end of the 18th century.
