Place Saint André 74100 Annemasse
When you see the 32-metre Neo-Gothic bell tower, it is hard to imagine that this is one of the oldest places in Annemasse. From when the town was known as 'Namasce' to the present day, there has been a succession of buildings on Saint-André square.
Although the building you can see today is the result of successive reconstructions, the first church is Annemasse stood where Saint André Church is today.
It was dedicated in 522 by Avitus, the bishop of Vienna, when he was returning from Saint-Maurice-d'Agaune. The first mention of 'Namasce' (which later would become 'Annemasse') can be found in texts describing this event. Excavations have revealed a pre-existing Gallo-Roman temple which could explain why this site was chosen.
