    With all its stone statues on the pediment and cast-iron statues on the ground, representing Notre-Dame’s apparitions to La Salette’s children, the chapel also has, in periphery, a “15 mystères du rosaire” path.

    With its stained-glass windows and paintings on canvas, the chapel is a real testimony of life during this period in the Loire valley.
