Fun walk, which is quite do-able. The walk starts just behind the church in the center. My 2 kids, 10 and 13, had no problem climbing the trial. Skill Level: 3 out of 10.

it's worth doing the hike
Oct 2019
Signposts in Castellane (the village at the foot of the rocky outcrop on which this chapel is built) indicate a 45-minute walk, but if you’re young and fit it’s really only 30 minutes. At regular intervals, there are a couple of shrines (oratoires) as well as all of the Stations of the Cross, for faithful pilgrims to pray at. I visited in autumn, and the magnificent views were enhanced by the gorgeous autumn colours of different trees, and the bright red of the wild rose-hips and other berries. You can enter the chapel and admire the altar and the many votive offerings left by the faithful. It’s recommended to carry a few euros with you to buy a candle – this helps pay for the upkeep of the chapel.

What an amazing view! Worth the hike.

We recommend you start your journey early in the summer vacation due to the hot sun. It was a gorgeous hike up the mountain. The chapel is lovely to visit as well. We sat and enjoyed the stunning views for quite a long time before heading back down. Wear good hiking shoes as there are quite a few loose rocks, especially on the way down. When you visit Castellane, you don’t want to miss this!

Nice hike, beautiful view
Jul 2019 • Family
The hike is really nice and not at all as hard as it looks from below. The view is stunning at the top - and you get a recap from the Bible on your way 😏
In total a little more than an hour.

Short and rewarding climb
Jul 2019 • Couples
Travelled up which took approximately 30 mins. Lovely scenic views of surrounding Castleanne. Sunny day which made the walk even better. Well signed for around the town as to where to start the climb.

Great hike, small chapel
Jun 2019 • Family
A nice hike, easier than it looks, about 20 min. The chapel is small of no great interest but the view is amazing. Take water and a hat

Absolutely worth the climb

Had an hour to spare between activities and took the walk up to the Chapel. The view is spectacular and though strenuous it didn’t take as long as I thought. Fabulous.

Most picturesque church in the world!

Definitely worth the climb! Make sure your camera/phone is charged as you will certainly want to take some photos from the top - oh and bring some water too!

It is worth going to the top to admire the view of castellane and the Verdon. The path to the top is well marked and there is a water tap near the top (water is a little warm).

Great view in all directions

Must do during a stay in Castellane. I'm always looking for places with a nice view from the top. Here, you don't have to be very sporty to reach the top, but please wear sport shoes and not flipflops or else (why do women so?).
