Site de l'Abbatiale de Payerne

L’Abbatiale de Payerne est la plus grande église romane de Suisse. Après plus de dix ans de travaux de restauration et de mise en valeur, elle a rouvert ses portes au public en juillet 2020. Son parcours de découverte offre un regard nouveau sur cet édifice clunisien et ses personnages originaux. A travers une scénographie audacieuse, constituée de vingt points audioguidés immersifs et interactifs, le visiteur est plongé dans le passé, à la découverte des secrets inédits que renferment ses murs.
