  • The Chapel is wonderfully situated on the seafront. It's paintings inside are unique and worth a visit. 
  • It is a work of 13th-14th century, but was completely rebuilt after the war was inaugurated in 1957, restorations and a small building located in a street parallel to the dock, The polychrome façade with dazzling colors. Inside, the walls were decorated by the painter Jean Cocteau, rather small, the magnificent wall decorations are divided into sectors the iconography is very diverse, from girls of Villefrance at zingarelle Saintes Maries de la mer, there are of course religious topics, such as scenes from the life of St. Peter and images of Christ, a small altar and crucifix. The pictorial decorations fully cover the Chapel, sometimes including. You can get there from Nice in 5 minutes by train costs € 1.40. The entrance to the chapel costs 3 euros, no photos. Those who have visited the Matisse Chapel in Vence cannot lose it, within certain limits are almost contemporary

  • I do not understand the French authorities who so maniacal persistence allow you to pohabit' their own historical and cultural sights of modern artists. Why was the book Chagall painting the ceiling of the Paris Opera? Well at least guessed save historic ceiling painting Palais Garnier, and shagalovskuju placed the cloth on a tension of daubing. Why was ordered the same Chagall stained-glass Windows in the Gothic Cathedral of Chartres, who is not divorced from the architectural and artistic style of the Cathedral? This, unfortunately, rhetorical questions. Here and here: rustic Church itself stood near the port, local sailors it network kept praying w. Peter is the patron saint of fishermen, on successful catch, the decoration was her nebogatoe, as well as fishing and so it continued ... That's just in the year 1957, the authorities decided to do it and pay for the restoration of the "Wolves", settled in Menton, trendy "artist" Jean Cocteau. Now nobody knows when this church was built, a service it already does not pass, but you can collect 3 euros for lust for "immortal creations of genius". It's a shame
