THE CHURCH

The late Gothic church consecrated to St. Maria is mentioned in 1450. In 1493, the nave is reconstructed, and the tower, built on a medieval foundation (14th century), is heightened. A new coat of paint in 1669 is noted, and in 1890, the tower receives a parapet and spire made of reinforced concrete. Renovations take place in 1904 and 1927 (renewal of Sgraffiti corners), followed by a restoration in 1989.

THE ORGAN

The Organ in S-chanf, built in 1904, is one of the last of its kind in Switzerland. With its 14 stops, it is a relatively small instrument but possesses a special characteristic. Each stop has its own soul, giving this organ a very delicate yet full sound. For example, the Bourdon 8' in the main manual has a very full sound and can, on its own, fill the church with volume. It is a Late Romantic organ built by the company Metzler, Opus 1, and the first pneumatic organ constructed by Metzler.
