P6097561ac Castellane Perched Chapel Notre Dame du Roc (185m) Altitude 903m
In the year 812, Castellane was totally destroyed by Saracen invasions; The survivors took refuge on the Roc, an impregnable stronghold and guaranteed safe-haven; The rock stands at an altitude of 903m and the chapel is 185m above the town and has a surface area 640m²; The current Chapel, a place of frequent pilgrimage, covered with ex-votos and demolished several times throughout history, dates from 1703; I hope there is a road leading to this perched chapel otherwise I should not attend the daily mass!!!
