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.
