  • The chapel of St- Roch was built following a plague that has plagued the region in the early seventeenth century.

    Saint-Roch is often cited as the saint who usually attends his devotees against infection (the plague, among others).

    Saint-Roch is usually represented with a dog. A native of Montpellier, Saint-Roch was rescued by a dog who took a daily bread on the table of his master to feed the Saint who was sick somewhere in the Italian countryside.

    Note: Chapel only visible from the outside.
