Chapel, French Heritage monument to Melrand

The building is rectangular, single vessel with flat chevet. A polygonal Chapel is adjacent to the North. The Chapel is dated 1776 on the Western side, it seems to have been rebuilt at this time. The roofing panelling painted in 1852 was gone, replaced by a modern paneling. A fountain of devotion, combined with a wash-House, was built dated 1896 (scope on the gable), a hundred meters South.
