It's very small; you can view the whole chapel from the door. Inexpensive and worth a visit if you're already there but don't make a trip.

This is a fantastic opportunity to view Jean Cocteau's vivid decoration of an old chapel. The religious significance is not very obvious but its a good 3 euros worth.

It was so cool to see that very colorful and bright church sitting tight there in the heart of the city. There's a very nice quaint charm surrounding this place and we'll worth stopping by.

I can't really add to what has been said. But all the photos sow pretty much the same view from the front, so I thought you should make sure when you are there that you view the chapelle from the bottom of the steps behind...More

Decorated by Jean Cocteau in his line type drawings. Depictions of biblical scenes in a contemporary sort of approach rather than traditional. So appealing and refreshing.

We were a group of 7 and the custodian took the time to talk us through the history and individual frescos on the walls of this extraordinary gem.
