rocco says of the history of this building :

Cette chapelle a été édifiée à l'emplacement ou à proximité d'un monument gallo-romain, probablement un mausolée. Les maçonneries réemploient des matériaux antiques, en particuliers deux fragments d'une épitaphe, visibles au-dessus des portes de l'édifice.
