Two hundred metres beyond the church at Notre Dame de la Gorge, a small rather remarkable chapel is perched on the side of the rockface. The primitive structure was located directly in line with the current chapel.
According to tradition, the first hermit to settle at the Gorge chose this spot. At the beginning of the Middle Ages the holy chapel became a highly prized place of pilgrimage for the inhabitants of the region.
Even today, for the Assumption on 15th August and on 8th September, the anniversary of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, a procession is organized from the Church of Notre-Dame de la Gorge to the Holy Chapel.
From 01/01 to 31/12, daily.
