I was very happy to come to les Baux and learn about Yves Brayer. His style is really beautiful and this chapel is quite evocative. Be sure to visit the nearby museum.

Interesting little church in the middle of Les Baux de Provence. Surroundings are amazing as well as the views from different areas around the village.

This isn't the most elaborative church I've ever visited but it's worth a quick stop just to see the modernist frescoes that decorate all of the walls. Nice photo op. from outside because of a lovely facade.

Nice little chapel somewhat stark inside but nice modern frescoes. Well worth a short visit while in town.

This is a nice enough little chapel with attractive, albeit modern frescoes. For more interest - make sure you look at the church just across the road.

We loved the chapel and the Yves Brayer Frescos. Each year we make a calendar of the best photos from our 1 month vacation and this made the calendar.

Visited this chapel whilst walking around Les Baux de Provence. Some interesting modern frescos of the Nativity, but not as atmospheric as the nearby eglise St Vincent. Lovely views from the terrace outside.

This small 17th century chapel at the edge of the cliff has been entirely decorated in 1974 by painter Yves Brayer, the one of the museum next door. The style is striking and powerful and the theme is Nativity transposed in Provence.

The chapel is nice to visit next to the church. It is small and I was lucky that there was not a lot of people when I visited. The chapel and the church together, the walk up to the church and the view from church...More
