The exterior of the building is quite plain but once inside the interior is stunning and the works emit the emotion and dedication of the creator. There is a mosaic, sculptures, stained glass windows, canvases and murals which are displayed on the walls and ceiling....More

There's not much to say. It's a pretty open chapel with some interesting art and sculpture. Interesting and free to see with the Cote d'Azur card. Only takes a few minutes to glance at. Not something I'd consider a must-see in St-Paul-de-Vence.

Go, it's worth 4 euros (and you get into the local museum), the artwork,meaning is simply stunning and very worthwhile spending a 20 to 30 minutes inside

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.
