These rural chapels of Breil are among the many rural chapels with baroque decorations built in the Roya Valley from the 17th century, in the Counter-Reformation context.
Initially collective or founded by a family, these chapels scattered over the vast agricultural territory of the town allowed the celebration of services for the inhabitants of the district.
The small country chapels of the seventeenth and eighteenth century in Breil, can sometimes pass for a “casoun” (farmhouse). Indeed, the simplicity of their facades systematically allowed the view of the altar from the outside when the chapel was closed by grid windows and framing the front door.
Their small nave is covered with vaults masonry, semicircular, or crossed with edges. Some have retained their altar with Baroque altarpiece.
