Petit Futé's opinion on SAINT-PIERRE D'ARETTE

Plate millesim 2022

This magnificent Baroque church was built in 1693 and then almost completely destroyed in the earthquake of August 13, 1967. Saint-Pierre d'Arette was then completely rebuilt in the same way. It has beautiful 17th century classified furniture, including a magnificent altarpiece. A small deviation from the original building, the stained glass windows, a modern work created by Paul Ambille representing pastoral scenes and images of the earthquake. You will also be able to observe the two current bells of 800 and 400 kilos. They were saved during the earthquake at the cost of a real technical feat by the fire brigade. These two bells were melted in Tarbes in 1893, from the only bell purchased in 1793 from the parish of Sainte-Croix d'Oloron. They replaced the two original bells that had been requisitioned by the convention for the needs of the revolutionary army.
