A small quick hook (or not) during your hike around the Pointe St Hospice (or even tour of Cap Ferrat) to do absolutely to find you in this place out of time, at the top of the Pointe. The Chapel, built in the XVIIth century on the ruins of a tower where Saint Hospice lived in the 6th century, is very sober, but it feels an ineffable tranquility in this place... Certainly the Chapel is not maintained as it deserves, but it is still astonishing, with its preau, antichamber of the very small nave where are placed old wooden benches. But the most astonishing is this statue of the Virgin and the child, high of 11 meters high and all in bronze, commissioned at the beginning of the twentieth century by an oil trader to mark a wish. The Madonna, placed next to the Chapel, seems to protect the premises... 2 cemeteries are also part of this magical place, a French cemetery and the Belgian cemetery where 90 Belgian soldiers were buried during the 1st World War. Indeed, part of the former property of King Leopold II, had then been transformed into a military hospital by his nephew Albert I, more exactly in the convalescent centre for the soldiers who were victims of the gas, and many of them died and were buried on the spot. One last word to emphasize the prettiness from the point of view of this quiet and soothing place.

She is sober, but the large statue is impressive, as is the nearby military cemetery.
