An artistic journey
with Jean-Michel Folon

Jean-Michel Folon: guide to diversity , creativity and embracing the world
In 2018, Saint-Paul de Vence has celebrated the 10th anniversary of Folon’s chapel - the region’s last artist’s chapel. Jean-Michel Folon’s masterpiece still fills visitors’ hearts and minds with light through the «white penitent» values of love and sharing.
The Belgian artist discovered Saint-Paul de Vence in the mid ‘70s. The village chapel and its illustrations, paintings and sculptures constituted his last project, conveying the universal values of love and peace.

From 1 October to 30 April: 10.30am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 4pm.
The Folon Chapel is closed in November, on December 25th and January 1st.
