Petit Futé's opinion on THE CHAPEL OF PENITENTS

Vintage plate 2020

This former hotel was donated by Jacqueline d 'Aumont, a marquic marquise of Allègre, to the Brotherhood of White Penitents of the Puy in 1584. It was built and inaugurated on the Saint Thursday of 1856. The chapel opens its doors every Thursday during the procession of this order. During the Revolution, she was saved from the desecration by the guild of the butchers who used it as a deposit and drying leather. The small museum contains remarkable paintings and sculptures, including numerous paintings performed by local artists. The ceiling painted with Renaissance, very richly decorated, has been restored several times. It is believed that Guy François and Josué Parier have made certain parts of it. The choir paintings were painted by Maurice Girard-Buffet in the early eighteenth century. Other works, including the Leak in Egypt and the Cana Noces, are attributed to Stardon. The ancient remains of the altar are for the four angels carved by Mathieu Bonfils, one of Pierre Vanneau's pupils.
