Fodor's Review

The first recorded mention of the Saanen Church, the oldest building in the region, was in 1228, and it is no doubt older than that. Just off Saanen's main street, the church is open daily for visits unless a service is being held. This Romanesque structure was renovated in the 20th century to reveal portions of medieval frescoes on the interior walls.
