The chapel of Vers-la-Ville, in the heart of the sandstone

From its sandstone cocoon, the chapel of Vers-la-Ville opens onto the village. Along its access path, the cultivation terraces follow one another. Large blocks appear at every turn. And these houses leaning against the rock or directly built on a rock… amazing!
