The chapel has very restricted hours, so first we explored the old town and had lunch. Just inside the city wall is the fountain which is relatively new, having been there only since the 19th century.
The cathedral in Vence is small, but very attractive. It was built between the 12th and 15th centuries on the site of a former Roman temple dedicated to Mars. The stones on each side of the door are remnants from that temple. There are cherubs over the door and naive wooden statues inside the church. These statues were made by furniture makers and carpenters rather than wood carvers, and that is why they are considered naive art. Somehow they managed to survive the destruction of religious images that accompanied the French revolution.
What I liked most about the cathedral was the mosaic by Marc Chagall showing Moses in the bulrushes. It's located behind the baptismal font.
It was served on a slice of wood and included salad and fried zucchini. Bill had a seafood salad.
