Stunning chapel. Treat yourself.
Sep 2019 • Friends
We stumbled across this chapel while walking in St Paul de Vence. It is quiet and cool inside and very peaceful, but it’s primary attraction, the mosaics. The mosaic behind the altar is stunning and there are more pictures in the alcoves down the side walls.

Lovely, Peaceful, Airy

We visited this chapel and really knew nothing about its creator--Folon, but we were impressed by the beautiful mosaics, light golden colors, and the airy feeling throughout the chapel. It was well worth seeing for a modest fee.

Coolth and Quietitude
Sep 2018
A historic and baeutiful place, out of the tourist bustle in a stunning old walled town, which offers cool and quiet and a place to reflect on all the history and life around; well worth a visit, and a pasue in a probably fairly hectic day. It is for anyone

Beautiful chapel, ‘interesting’ museum...
Jul 2019 • Couples
The chapel is beautiful and absolutely worth a visit. The museum (ticket gets you entry to both) is essentially a series of tableaux with wax dummies portraying scenes from the history of St. Paul de Vence, it’s great if like me you appreciate a good unintentionally odd museum, but otherwise ten minutes should do it!

Worth a visit just for the mosaic
Feb 2019 • Couples
This quiet unspoilt chapel is light and airy, unlike so many churches in France. The mosaic is stunning and must have been a labour of love.

a hidden quite jewel

Just a 30 minute bus ride from Nice, France. Forego overpriced tours and use local bus. Suggest taking time off and visit this often missed jewel

A wonderful and peaceful chapel
Sep 2018 • Couples
We were stunned by this chapel the first time we visited when there was some repair work going on to the floor. This time we were able to sit and absorb the peace and serenity of the chapel and marvel at the mosaics, the stained glass windows and the paintings. The history of the restoration of the chapel by the artist Folon is on show in the museum opposite which is also worth a visit.

Beautiful!

From the outside you wouldn't know or care about the chapel on the inside. But this is one place you have to visit. It is beautiful! It is so well done, and I have never seen anything like it anywhere else in the world. It is worth your time to see it.
