The tale of this chapel is rather nice, do look up opening hours as it is sometimes closed due to vandalism. It is worth a look if you are in the area.

A very out-of-the-way place, well off the tourist radar except for the Picasso fans. Very small, unassuming, and peaceful. Well worth taking a few minutes to sit inside and relish the cool of its shade. Picasso did live next door, part of his house is...More

There was a wedding at the old church and it looked so traditionally French. Yet the Church is so small.

A sweet chapel but really difficult to find and if you hope to see Picasso's former home then you'll be disappointed; you can get a glimpse of the back through some trees but that's about it. There's a small photo exhibition upstairs but nothing to...More
