Chapelle des Penitents - Grimaud

Throughout the ancient Medieval villages of rural France these beautiful chapels can be found, namely Les Chapelles des Penitents originially officiated by The White Penitents, a fraternity who helped the poor of the village. This particular chapel is in the beautiful hilltop village of Grimaud close to St Tropez, and it was founded in the 15th century, with the construction date of 1482 located on the entrance lintel. 
Happy New Year 2014.....Enjoy!!
