The oratoire was constructed in 1830 to protect the area from avalanches and flooding.
The stone base of the niche was recovered from the ravine.  The roof is four-sided with slate tiles, topped by a weather vane and cockerel.

The niche contains a painting dating from the early 19th century representing the Holy Family.  There are also 4 small angels and a statue of the Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus.

In June 2008 the Oratoire was restored by Cecile & Roland Berthoud. 

 

The painting was restored in 2021.
