Overview

San Bernardin Chapel, or, as it’s known by locals, the chapel of the White Penitents, is a religious building in the centre of Antibes. It’s dedicated to a Tuscan Franciscan, Saint Bernardin of Siena, a preacher who travelled through Italy.

The exterior of this Roman Catholic church is in Gothic style architecture and is composed of pinnacles at its highest point which support the silhouettes of penitents on the sides. If you look above the door you will see carved head of Lucifer, known as the spirit of evil in an interpretation as if he is struck down by the saints and the protective angels.

Moving in on the interior, you will find an altar, a table used for ritual offers which is decorated with twisted columns in an Italian Baroque style followed by acanthus leaves. This composition of Baroque style and acanthus leaves has its root as both Greek and Roman, making this building very interesting and exceptional.

The ceiling is also very interesting as it is created with trompe-l’œil, an optical illusion technique intended to play on the confusion of perception. It is a very famous technique in France and it can be found in many museums, chapels and even buildings around each city, especially in Nice. If you look up to the ceiling you will see the four evangelists, the Virgin Mary, Christ and Saint Bernardin painted in this technique.

Today, the chapel is religious place as well as a cultural monument. It is also home to some offices and many concerts as well. The chapel is open on Wednesdays from 10 am to 12 pm, Thursday and Saturday from 9 am to 12 pm or 2 pm to 5 pm.

Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There's a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Thank you https://aixindashi.stream/story.php?title=enjoy-full-tv-shows-online#discuss

Hi there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask! https://creablog.top/doku.php?id=An_incredibly_fascinating_website_with_fantastic_posts!_l2g2b8i8

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone! https://mmoyb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=2485156

Does your website have a contact page? I'm having trouble locating it but, I'd like to send you an email. I've got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

Hey are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated! https://dodeus.com.bd/?qa=46629/how-to-shop-for-a-auto-and-safeguard-oneself-info-num-3-of-159

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results. http://www.freakyexhibits.net/index.php/Car_Buying_Won_t_Have_To_Be_Depressing..._Tip_No._6_Of_709

Would you be thinking about exchanging links? https://entcheneer.org/index.php?title=User:GaryRechner5

Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you just could do with some to force the message home a little bit, however other than that, that is wonderful blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
