The chapel's walls were painted by Jean Cocteau and it is very Cocteau. The chapel is tiny but certainly worth swinging by if you are in Villefranche. A woman at the door collects a 3 Euro fee which is a donation for the fishermen. This...More

Go there and be delighted by the beautiful exterior and interior of this fascinating little chapel which features the art of Jean Cocteau. Closed on Tuesdays. 3E to get in. Worth it. No photos allowed but postcards are available.

This is a tiny and ancient church right in the harbor area. The inside was redone by the artist Jean Cocteau in the 50s, and is surprisingly fresh and airy. Only 3$ to get in, so well worth it.
