This chapel was originally built for Guillaume de Vanembras in the 15th century. During a visit in 1987, the Japanese artist Kyoji Takubo decided to restore it as a work of art. The roof is now covered with coloured glass tiles and where sheets of lead once hung from the walls, there are now paintings by the artist. The area surrounding the chapel has also been landscaped following the artist’s plans.
