Chapelle des Pénitents Noirs

The Chapel of the Black Penitents is a jewel of Baroque art from the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries. Behind its relatively sober facade hides a rich decor with a painted ceiling, a colorful and gilded altarpiece and six large paintings.

The exterior of this Baroque chapel, built in the XNUMXth century, retains great simplicity: modest size, plan in the shape of a Greek cross, classical façade, curious double bell tower. It does not surprise any less by the profusion of its interior decoration. Decorated with a painted ceiling and paintings from the XNUMXth century, the chapel houses a carved wooden altarpiece (XNUMXth century), gilded with leaf, representing scenes from the Passion of Christ. The wooden vault, painted in very bright colors and in a naive style, refers to the cult of the Cross.
