Saint Sébastien Chapel


An imposing building following and east-west orientation standing on Rue Centrale, Saint Sébastien Chapel was used as the headquarters of the Confraternity of Black Penitents. Its construction began in the 12th century and was completed in the 19th century. In the Romanesque style, it features a high façade with twinned windows. As you take a stroll around, notice its original orientation, with a chevet facing west.

In 1386, it is topped by a hemispheric cupola made of local tuff by mason craftsman Balbo Lorenzo of Mondovi.

Towards 1930, Saint-Sébastien Chapel was abandoned and eventually converted into a townhall.
