Chapel of Mercy

Chapel of Mercy

Located in the Old Town, this chapel where the inaugural stone was blessed in 1639 in the reign of Prince Honoré II, Prior of the Brotherhood of Black Penitents, is built with just one nave.

For four centuries on Easter Friday, this chapel was the starting point for the traditional procession of the Christ-Dead. It was abolished in 1870, and has been resumed in the last few years.
It houses a wooden Christ sculpted by the Monegasque François-Joseph Bosio, sculptor to Emperor Napoleon 1st.
