Notre Dame de Pitié

Unique in France for its set of ten carved wooden panels.

At the foot of the Collégiale Saint Michel is the small chapel of Notre Dame de Pitié.
Built outside the town walls in the 16th century, it is decorated with ten 18th-century Holy Week panels depicting the Passion of Christ, from Jesus’ Entry into Jerusalem to the crucifixion. These works by three different masters are of exceptional quality.

During the French Revolution, to avoid the chapel becoming state property, around thirty residents of the Saint Antoine neighbourhood purchased it. In 1972, the town bought the chapel for a symbolic franc. The Notre Dame de Pitié chapel was used for worship again in 1681.
