  • I recommend warmly to push the door of this small chapel and to let the time to discover! Statuary is pretty amazing: of course there are the "Virgin to the kidney" but I fell in AWE in front of the statue of St. Catherine! No need to stay your a long time but enough to soak up life and all human history there is behind the object, that faith which sometimes takes strange forms! (Still, you won't see often jesus nibble a kidney!).

  • We must return to the chapel that offers a haven of peace at 2 steps from the city center. A break even for non believers where it is good to spend some time. Put €1 and you will see the chapel light. It's beautiful.

  • Even if one is not a fan of places of worship, this one is small but unusual! located within a historic shopping street when we enter we escape time and the noise of the city. do not deprive themselves of drag a piece to turn on the scene!

  • Beautiful Chapelle. If you are in the area, add it to your must visit list.
  • 4 star for the outside, but alas 2 only for indoors. When even the detour and more the neighborhood is nice
