Sailors’ shrine (calvaire des marins)


The shrine is located on the top of the cliff and you can get there by climbing up

the Rue de la Baraque de l’empereur. It is designed in the shape of the hull of

a ship. There is an extraordinary view over the port, the ocean and, in fine

weather, England in the distance. It is dedicated to the memory of seamen lost

at sea. The chapel is decorated with many buoys and flags, the colours being

symbolic: coloured for boats at sea, and black and white for those which have

disappeared. An exhibition room contains models of ships, period photographs

and a display explaining the installation of the shrine in its various phases.

Opening hours: from 15 june to 21st september: Monday – Friday from 10-12h and 1430-17h.
