Chapelle Grand Saint-cassien - Review
At an altitude of nearly 700m, the mountain village of Sainte Baume is in itself a unique attraction. Far from the urbanized world, the village provides you with a splendid view of the surrounding mountain ranges, forests of beeches and oaks and of course, the unique chapel inside a cave. The church of Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur was built sometime between 11th and 12th century in traditional Romanesque style. It gets its name from its founder, John Cassian. Stained glass windows, wooden Calvary and statues of Saint Jacques de Compostela and Saint Barbara add to the beauty of the church. However, the popularity of the church must be credited to the natural cave, included in the church, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene. This cave is a pilgrimage site of Provence and the place where St. Mary Magdalene spent her final days in prayer.
