The art work is amazing. The lady behind the desk was so helpful and a very good ambassador for the town.

What a gorgeous little chapel... Shame we didn't get a chance to go inside. We were standing at the door looking in and trying to decide if we should pay the entrance fee or give it a miss when Madame slammed the door shut on...More

Go there and be delighted by the beautiful exterior and interior of this fascinating little chapel which features the art of Jean Cocteau. Closed on Tuesdays. 3E to get in. Worth it. No photos allowed but postcards are available.

The Chapelle is very tiny. The inside is quite unique and very interesting. There is a 3 euro charge for admission and no photos are permitted.

This is a tiny and ancient church right in the harbor area. The inside was redone by the artist Jean Cocteau in the 50s, and is surprisingly fresh and airy. Only 3$ to get in, so well worth it.

As a tribute to Cocteau this is a lovely peaceful and small and informal decorated chapel. We loved it, and the tickets allow for re-entry.
