The Little Chapel, St Peter Port

(800+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • A bit over the top but you have to admire the work that went in it. We visited as part of a cycling tour in the area.  more »

  • 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...
  • Little Chapel is surrounded by scaffolding and construction activity so it is not worth visiting at the moment.
  • Such a quirky attraction. An absolute must.
  • Beautiful well worth a visit
  • Great spot to see on your way to airport (or from; same bus goes past it). You will need max 15min. for it, nothing much to see, but worth it!
