The Folon Chapel

Discover the admirable design work of Jean-Michel Folon by visiting this chapel, and learn more about an artist who nurtured strong links with Saint-Paul for over thirty years. Folon's close collaboration with village craftsmen, his stained glass designs, sculptures, and fascination with light, are all keys to understanding his world and his conception of art.

The White Penitents' Chapel was Jean-Michel Folon's last design project before his death in 2005. It is also the last chapel in the Midi to have been decorated by an artist.

For further information, download the Guide to the Folon Tour.

The Folon chapel shop invites you to delve deeper into the world of Jean-Michel Folon with postcards, sketch pads, posters, etc.
