Very old chapel. The first of Barichara. Recommended and easy to access. It’s inside the town. Best view of Barichara from the chapel.

Nice little church at the top end of town. Some interesting stone statues out front. Art exhibit going on when I visited so didn’t go inside.

A very nice old little church, almost totaly empty inside. The floor is a ramp to the altar. Why ? In order to pay penitence.
