The "Tapolets"

The "Tapolets" – From Holy Thursday to Holy Saturday, we pretend the bells go to Roma and leave the bell towers silent. In both medieval cities, to replace them we use strange instruments equipped with a crank handle which lifts wood hammers: the "tapolets".Today, that ritual is very rare in Switzerland and is only practiced in Grimentz (VS), in Rue and in Romont (FR).
