Squeeze inside possibly the smallest chapel in the world. Brother Déodat started work on the The Little Chapel in 1914 with the aim of creating a miniature version of Lourdes’ famous Rosary Basilica in his native France. Admire the intricate and unusual decoration of the chapel, made from seashells, pebbles, and colorful pieces of broken china. Around eight people can squeeze into the chapel at once, so you may have to take it in turns if it’s busy. Our St Peter Port tourist route planner makes visiting The Little Chapel and other St Peter Port attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • It is such a wonderful experience, a lovely thing to do as a family. There is also so much info you can find out about the chapel. I would recommend you to go. 5 stars
  • A most unusual sight and worth a visit. Tiny passageways lead to little rooms covered in broken pottery and shells. Very unique. Unforgettable. Make sure to read about the chapel's beginnings and history.
  • The removal of the scaffolding will start on 3/4/17 as the new roof & waterproofing will be almost complete,well worth a visit the little chapel is being restored to its original glory for everyone to enjoy 😀
  • KRIKEY IT COULD ATTACK AT ANY MOMENT
  • Someone made a miniature copy of a Catholic church, and covered it with shells. A labour of love. Weird and slightly creepy, according to my wife. It looks better in photographs than it does in real life, but if you like that kind of thing, go for it! It won't take long...
