Go, it's worth 4 euros (and you get into the local museum), the artwork,meaning is simply stunning and very worthwhile spending a 20 to 30 minutes inside

Don't be deceived by the exterior of La Chapelle des Penitents Blancs. A wonderful surprise awaits you. Jean-Michel Folon's decoration-composed of a Ravenna-technique mosaic, four stained glass windows, two sculptures, and eight wall oil paintings-creates a brilliantly-colored, light-filled, spiritually-uplifting interior.

Lovely pictures and an amazing mosaic in this small chapel. On entering you have a great impression of light. The same ticket gets you entry to the museum which holds a series of historical tableaux.

In the midst of a medieval town one comes across a beautiful modern chapel. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for a quarter-hour. There's a sense of peace and calm that one can just breath in. Well worth the entrance fee.

This was a chapel by Folon housed in a medieval chapel. It was beautiful and tranquil and a delight to discover.

You get a great feeling of calm in this restored Chapel. The colours are very calming and it is an interesting place to see.

A small chapel in the heart of St Paul de Vence. Thoughtfully and beautifully decorated interior with a great feeling of calm while you are there. You can stay as long as you like and it is not expensive.
