Saint Jean-d'Orgerolles Chapel


Gallery of 8 photos for Saint Jean-d'Orgerolles Chapel

A very picturesque 11th-century Romanesque chapel, partially in ruins, sits out in the woods 700 m from the eastern end of the village. It's a 10-15 minute hike out on a pretty trail through the woods to the chapel. The ruins include a tall, intact bell tower in the original stone and a partially restored nave and rounded apse. Behind the chapel is an ancient graveyard, with old, grey headstones from the end of the 19th century.
