  • This area is worthy of a visit for the view more than the chapelle or the statue. It is a long hike up. We decided to take the car and did end up being able to drive all the way into the parking lot.....  more

  • It is well worth the climb up to Mont Pipet, past a huge graveyard, where you will arrive at a great view (and a public washroom) and a tiny church with a fascinating story. The story of the church.....  more

  • Absolutely stunning. Wonderful stained glass. Loved it.
  • Beautiful and charming chapel perched on top Bèlvédere Pipet hill overlooking Vienne. It's quite modestly decorated inside but it's sense of history, calmness and a "otherworldly presence" makes this quite a unique experience for me. Most notably the brick tower carrying The Virgin Mary with the child with a stone statue of Volvic. This chapel is dedicated to the Apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Dauphine. Inside may be rather tamed in decor but pause at the stained-glass windows as they reveal stories of the history of Christianity in Vienne. It's quite an effort to get up to this chapel being on top of the Bèlvédere Pipet hilltop but the rewards are priceless! You get to spend moments of silence in the Chapel then enjoy the most spectacular views of Vienne all in one visit. I don't believe there's public transportation that comes this high up but highly recommend finding Chemin de Amoureux Track as it takes up directly starting from Montée Saint-Marcel (google maps this track). There's public lavatory and really suitable for all ages. Oh, you can drive up here but only limited car spaces. Best time to visit is weekend during winter months as not too crowded.
