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.
très bel endroit où l'on découvre cette petite église dont les peintures sont époustouflantes. Une gentille bergère nous a fait découvrir ce chef d'oeuvre. Le lieu est calme et reposant. more »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.
un endroit plein de mystère les fresques intérieures 15ém siècles sont dans un remarquable état de conservation dommage qu elle ne soit pas plus mis en valeur de même que le site . more »a place full of mystery the frescoes inside 15em centuries are in a remarkable state of preservation a pity that she is not more in value as well as the site.
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.
