Isolated at the top of a steep hill, the chapel is probably part of one of the eldest Cistercian priories of the Rhone valley.
Hidden in a tight forest of holm oaks, the walls, covered with lichen and moss catch the sun’s rays in a discrete and sensitive way.
Some of the stones preserve the traces of the tools that shaped them 900 years ago.
