  • In the heart of the old town of Saint Paul de Vence, the masterpiece of Jean Michel Folon, I love him as much as the Matisse Chapel.

  • This quiet unspoilt chapel is light and airy, unlike so many churches in France. The mosaic is stunning and must have been a labour of love.  more »
  • The Chapel is a quiet place nicely decorated from the drawings of Folon L entrance which is worth 4 euros is too expensive even if it is coupled with the Museum in front which has little interest

  • Not really a church anymore it seems like an art gallery but still worth stopping in.
  • Saint-Paul-de-Vence, perched on top of a hilltop is a small medieval town near Nice that host some of the most amazing art museums and galleries I’ve ever seen. If I ever develop the taste (and money) for collecting art, this would be the 1st place to start hunting.
  • One adjective: Unmissable!!!

  • Chapel of the beaten Whites now exhibition space of works by Folon. Is made of stone, with a single nave covered by a barrel vault.

  • Nestly behind the collegiate church, the large chapel at the top of the village, this small shrine is a small jewel, decorated with softness and finesse by Jean-Michel Folon. An artist whose whole generation of cable cars have seen the late night generics. Very symbolized men took flight to disappear on the horizon before the end of the programmes. Folon also has an intimate history with St. Paul. He signs, among other things, the little sign of the Golden Dove suspended at the entrance of this mythical place. And this Chapel, when you go up to St. Paul is a unique place where everything breathes serenity. Folon us into a reverie out of time. It's magical!! Another place to visit that I recommend to all my guests of the Villa spring. It's not to be missed.
