Built at the top of a hill with a breath-taking view over the village of Cudrefin and Lake Neuchâtel, the charming church of St. Théodule is a building filled with history.

Nowadays, the exact date of its construction is still unknown, but it is certain that the church of St. Theodule was built at the time of Count Humbert of Savoy (died in 1374). The Legend says that the Count, a prisoner in Bulgaria during the Crusades, was freed thanks to a ransom paid in part by the Lordship of Cudrefin. To show his gratitude, the Count made this church built on the top of the hill.

First Catholic, then Reformed from the 15th century, the Gothic style church is composed of a vast vaulted choir, in which one can observe various coats of arms, of a chapel, a bell tower, without forgetting decorative and figurative paintings. It was restored several times between 1897 and 1914, then between 1984 and 1991. The architecture and the breath-taking panorama delight more than one visitor. Many weddings take place on weekends.

Today, the charming building belongs to the Reformed parish Vully-Avenches.
