Touching and sad because of the human tragedies that lie behind the myriad of prayers and notes that crowd this little chapel. Some of my family found it overwhelmingly morbid, others found it interesting.

This place has to have the most spectacular alter I have ever seen in my life. Still undergoing some renovations but you can see its more restoration so well worth the hassle. The chapel is tranquil and brings a sense of peace to anyone who visits. Inside and out its a beauty to the eyes. No internal photographs as I... More

The best vin d'honneur ever - 360 degres view, stones and pines trees - 10,000 km travel just to see that. The best view of the cote d'azur.

We love this place. The views are to die for and the Chapel is just lovely. Very interesting with obviously a heavy marine influence. Do take the time to visit.

I was just there today and the chapel was closed and undergoing major renovations. It was not possible to get in, but looking inside through a window it looked like a construction site. The views are still breathtaking though and hopefully the chapel will be ready for the public again next season.

I almost hate to review this spot, because I do not want throngs of people to invade it. The views from the Chapelle are unrivaled for looking back at Antibes, Juan les Pins, Cannes. It's a picture postcard place from which to take photos. Shaded and beautiful lighting. The chapel is sweet and if all churches looked like this, more... More

A moving walk up Chimin du Calvaire to Santuario della Garoupe on Good Friday, past the 12 stations of the cross. Wonderful views over Antibes and Jaun le Pins, church peaceful. But the paintings have been removed and I have no idea why! It was somehow beautiful in its simplicity.

If you are in the Antibes/Juan Les Pins area then it is worth a trip up to the Phare and Sanctuary de Garoupe. The drive up is interesting, past some magnificent gated villas, and then when you get to the top there are great views of Antibes and Nice. The sanctuary itself is very interesting, with touching messages for those... More

Always loved this tiny church dedicated to those lost at sea...it's peaceful, full of soul and moving...I always saw myself getting married there, but never did....
