  • The person of the tourist office opens the doors of the Chapel is located 5 km from the Brig. Very erudite, his comments are very interesting and humorous. Magnificent paintings in an exceptional State of preservation.

  • The Sistine Chapel in miniature. In the middle of a tiny Chapel of the frescoes of the Xv breathtaking and discover in the light of flashlights. A treat!. The visit out of season is a little complicated to organise, but worth the trip. Guide cultured and passionate.

  • 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!
