In the nineteenth century, long-haul crews rode here before sailing to seek the protection of Saint Anne. On their return they will come back to thank her with ex-voto. The chapel is only open May 18 ( last day of Bravades ), July 26 ( St. Anne ) and August 15 ( Assumption ). This building with simple shapes, pure Provencal style, surrounded by cypresses, pines and oak trees, overlooking the sea and countryside. He reigns over that hill a rare tranquility and harmony.
