CHAPELLE SAINT-HUBERT

COURCELLES-LE-ROI - 45

Of very simple architecture, the building mentioned since 1271 is adjoined to the south of the unfinished choir. The present-day chapel was consecrated by the Archbishop of Sens in 1656, and was a popular place of pilgrimage until the 19th century. What makes the chapel so exceptional is its charming polychrome interior: the walls and ceiling are entirely covered with folk-inspired mural paintings, depicting the legend of Saint Hubert in the western section, while the vault features Christ in majesty and the dove of the Holy Spirit. A trompe-l?oeil architectural decor features the patron saints Apolline, Geneviève, Antoine, Emérenciène, Fiacre, Grégoire, Firmin, Catherine, Marguerite and Hubert.
