When walking the pomenade along the river (see first tip), you'll finally end up between the woods and the pastures upon the hill at your left and the river bed at your right. Walk up the hill to reach this beautiful lonely little chapel.
From there you can follow the path to the Medieval town.
Notice the special black silex stones in the construction. This is typical for this region.
Here is a story about this chapel:
In 622, a certain Saint-Valéry was buried here, as he wished. This chapel became a place of pilgrimage for lots of supportes who were attracted by his bones and relics. And what is more, the water of the well seemed to be (!)miraculous. In 1878, the old chapel has been replaced by this one.
Address: at the end of the "rue de la Chapelle"
Directions: Number 5 on this map. (scroll down to page two)
