The Saint Martin Chapel is an 11th-12th century Romanesque chapel ruins beside the village of St Victor-la-Coste. The remaining section of ruins of the stone chapel include the apse and most of the tall bell tower, still impressive after about a thousand years.
 
This open-air version is quite different from the ancient covered lavoirs more common in Provence and the South of France.

The old chapel ruins sit in an open area of a nice little park, with a couple of tables for picnicking. Just behind the chapel is the old Lavoir, open-air and low, with flowing water and frogs.

A local hiking trail follows mostly country lanes between the chapel and the village centere, marked as 2 km and taking about 30 minutes each way.
