“Best small chapel in France”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

Don't want to give it away. Stand in line or go early or late but go. Preserved by being a storage space for years. Look at details linger awhile sit in a chair and gaulk

Reviewed 2 May 2012

Access was a little cumbersome but the stained glass windows were fabulous. Some restorative work going on.
