Saint-Peter chapel decorated by Jean Cocteau

Saint-Peter chapel decorated by Jean Cocteau


This Roman-style Chapel at the water’s edge is listed Historic monument. It was entirely painted and decorated by Jean Cocteau in 1957 and then donated to his fishermen friends. In the façade, we can notice among other things The Keys of Heaven, St Peter’s tiara, a statue of St Peter, a cross made of four fish, the Apocalypse candelabras. Inside the church, we can see frescoes depicting scenes of St Peter’s life, some fishermen’s daughters clad in traditional Villefranche attire, a gypsy scene at Saintes Marie de la Mer.
