    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.

    Chapel which lies at the end of nowhere and that outdoor is not conducive to the visit. However the frescoes pintent inside are very surprising and scale. This Chapel is certainly worth a visit.

    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.

    ... 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!

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