  • The chapel plays an important role during the Grand Pardon on August 15th. Notre Dame de la Clarté is the patron saint of sailors. The chapel’s 18th century spire acted as a landmark for sailors lost in fog. Three model boats suspended in front of the chapel bear testimony to the sailors’ belief in the Virgin Saviour. The Chemin de Croix, a work by Maurice Denis, was donated by the master painter in 1931. The statue of the Virgin is made of stone and was crowned in 1946.
