Moûtiers Cathedral

Moûtiers Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Moûtiers) is a Roman Catholic church and former cathedral, and national monument of France, in Moûtiers en Tarentaise.

It was formerly the seat of the Archdiocese of Tarentaise, abolished under the Concordat of 1801. It was afterwards the seat of the re-formed Bishopric of Tarentaise from 1825 until 1966, when the diocese of Tarentaise, Diocese of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne and the Archdiocese of Chambéry were amalgamated to form the present Archdiocese of Chambéry, Maurienne and Tarentaise.
