The 'Sistine Chapel' of France's Maritime Alps, miraculous survivor of deadly floods

The painted chapel of Notre-Dame-des-Fontaines at La Brigue with its 15th century mural frescoes managed to survive unscathed the deadly floods which devastated the Roya valley at the beginning of October. Nicknamed the "Sistine Chapel" of the Alpes-Maritimes, it was built at the end of the Middle Ages, on the salt road which went up from the Mediterranean to Italy.
