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.

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.

Lovely pictures and an amazing mosaic in this small chapel. On entering you have a great impression of light. The same ticket gets you entry to the museum which holds a series of historical tableaux.

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.
