The "Tapolets" in Romont

Collégiale Notre-Dame de l'Assomption
Rue de l'Eglise
1680 Romont

The bells are replaced by the "tapolets", just before Easter. Today, that ritual is very rare in Switzerland as it is only practiced in Rue (FR), Romont (FR), Cressier (FR), Grimentz (VS) and some places in Jura.

From Holy Thursday to Holy Saturday, we pretend the bells go to Roma and leave the bell towers silent. In both medieval cities (Romont and Rue), to replace them we use strange instruments equipped with a crank handle which lifts wood hammers: the "tapolets".

In Romont, the "tapolets" are played at the Collegiate Church.

From 14 to 16 Apr 2022
