  • A little lost chapel which, by the richness of its frescos, worth a visit! Don't hesitate to take a guided tour (free visit possible priori?) that will allow to better understand and appreciate this true work of art that dates back to the 15th century. Attention: well informed on the visiting hours. It seems that there is a slight mismatch between the tourist office and the association that manages the chapel... we did a tour with the association. It was perfect.

  • very nice place where you discover this small church whose paintings are breathtaking. A nice Shepherdess made us discover this masterpiece. The place is quiet and relaxing.

  • Beautiful church. At the time we visited it, it was peaceful and quiet. Only 3 other visiters. The paintings are beautiful. I can imagine it's called the Sistine chapel of the Alpes. I think it's even worth a detour! Don't forget to visit the town of La Brigue as well. It's a really nice town with very good lunch options and a beautiful church.
  • Pristine Church. ****
  • ... then 4 km from La Brigue, suddenly, this splendid little church frescoed whole 400 ' from heaven to Earth. A reason locals call it the Sistine Chapel of the Alps: same AWE, same excitement, same magnificenza! La Brigue is easily accessible from Nice, with the "train of wonders" from Ventimiglia and from Limone Piemonte: then the sanctuary must be walked. There is also the possibility to walk the 4 km through a forest path: pity that the goal is not always well marked. Worth a detour!

  • A real gem with precious frescoes and all in the original state. During my visit, I was lucky, the chapel was opened. For all other cases, a phone number is left if necessary, then usually a young man and includes the chapel. Great service - thank you!

  • Exceptional, domestic Chapel covered with paintings of the 15th century, always original, without renovation. Entry 4 euros and free for children.
