The Chapel on the Vire

Patrimoine culturel,

CONDÉ-SUR-VIRE

The Chapel on the Vire, nestling in the heart of the Vire Valley, has been a pilgrimage site since the 12th century. Today, this elegant neo-Gothic chapel of red stone shelters two statues from the 14th and 16th centuries which have miraculously survived. The 15th century main altar is in white stone with superb reliefs in albaster. Permanent exhibitions evoke the importance of pilgrimage over the centuries. The site is a great place for walks along the towpath and the Way of the Cross. Leisure and picnic area (5 000 m²) near the site.
