|Chapelle des Penitents Noirs|
All this is pretty irrelevant, though, to the Chapel's gorgeous ornate interior. Rounded and vaulted, it's a surprisingly cozy and intimate space
The room is surrounded with 6 large 18th century paintings depicting, the Annunciation, the birth of Christ and the Crucifixion
.The centerpiece of the Chapel is the crucified Christ under a dome of stars and angels
with it all overlooked by God the Father with the Son.
Beautiful and very difficult to imagine the space filled with black robed and hooded figures!
