A Romanesque chapel that was restored and decorated by Jean Cocteau it is easy to miss - I did - twice. Not sure what I was expecting but it is a tiny chapel, not much bigger than a small house but right next to the cruise ship port. There is not a lot to see except the painted walls by... More

This beautiful little church is located close to all the Villefranche action. It is so quaint and inside the walls are decorated with paintings by Jean Cocteau. Definitely worth seeing as they are not in the usual 'church' style, very different yet still tranquil and calming.

I have known about this Chapelle dedicated to fisher men that Jean Cocteau created during one year in the late fifties, but for some reason, I never ventured inside. I had just visited the museums dedicated to his work in Menton and it just got my curiosity that with the beautiful painted details outside what could be inside? Truly something... More

It's very small; you can view the whole chapel from the door. Inexpensive and worth a visit if you're already there but don't make a trip.

This is a fantastic opportunity to view Jean Cocteau's vivid decoration of an old chapel. The religious significance is not very obvious but its a good 3 euros worth.

It was so cool to see that very colorful and bright church sitting tight there in the heart of the city. There's a very nice quaint charm surrounding this place and we'll worth stopping by.

Jacque Coustea decorated this chapel. It,s a nice respite from the bustle of the town. Beautiful drawings. 3 euro charge, no photos, but there are plenty of postcards to purchase of every wall.
