  • Notre Dame of Aubune Chapel

This chapel , dedicated to the Virgin Mary, was built in honour of the victory of Charlemagne at dawn against the Sarrasins. The tower of this 12th Century chapel is listed as a historical monument. The initials of the architect, UGO, can still be seen on the front of the chevet. These same initials can be seen on the Saint Anne Chapel in Apt.

We can also visit the remains of the St. Hilary Chapel which was built on the ruins of the feudal Château du Castellas (7th century). Thanks to this castle and its surrounding walls, Beaumes de Venise was one of the most powerful fortified villages in the Middle Ages

  • SAINT ROCH CHAPEL

This chapel was built in 1586 to celebrate the fact that the plague had not invaded the village of Beaumes de Venise. It was built on a site that was given to the village by the Countess of Baldissero, using stones from the ancient chapel.

  • CHAPELLE ST SEBASTIEN

The Saint Sebastien chapel was built in the first year of the 17th Century but was not completed until after the plague, 28 years later. The front of the chapel is adorned with a beautiful wrought iron cross, to protect the village from the plague.

  • SAINT ANNE CHAPEL

Built after the plague of 1629 by Pierre Moulin, this chapel collapsed in 1634. Many locals were buried under the rubble. The reconstruction took 10 years, during which time nobody was allowed to enter the chapel.
