La Chapelle des Penitents Blancs is a very beautiful place to visit. The themes represented in the paintings and the incredible mosaic are graceful. The chapelle is currently closed for the month but if you take the tourist office's guided tour, you are able to visit the chapelle in a very peaceful manner. I highly recommend visiting.
This is one of the most beautiful spaces I have ever seen. Designed by Folon for the White Penitents (an order of priests). It is a light-filled space with the most stunning Ravenna mosaic. There are eight lovely oil murals, three stained glass windows, and the most moving, simple sculptures. From the outside, you would never expect what this interior...
Don't be deceived by the exterior of La Chapelle des Penitents Blancs. A wonderful surprise awaits you. Jean-Michel Folon's decoration-composed of a Ravenna-technique mosaic, four stained glass windows, two sculptures, and eight wall oil paintings-creates a brilliantly-colored, light-filled, spiritually-uplifting interior.
In the midst of a medieval town one comes across a beautiful modern chapel. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for a quarter-hour. There's a sense of peace and calm that one can just breath in. Well worth the entrance fee.
A small chapel in the heart of St Paul de Vence. Thoughtfully and beautifully decorated interior with a great feeling of calm while you are there. You can stay as long as you like and it is not expensive.
