Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful little chapel, well worth a visit. The views are truly spectacular.
There are some curious reviews on this website, awarding fewer than five stars because the walk up to the chapel is not very well signposted, and there are some tracks that peter out! Difficult to understand how the chapel is responsible for this. Consulting online maps is never failsafe... be prepared! It is a steep, yet very rewarding, climb if you avoid the main road.
Other reviewers have awarded fewer than five stars because the chapel is closed when they arrive. A simple online check documents the daily opening times.
This is a lovely walk (both up and down), to a chapel with memorable views.

Take road to Revelletta view point and then follow signs up. Tight road through very strange rock formations. Nice church on the hill with amazing view over Calvi, mountains etc. Unfortunately church itself was closed.

Having just visited the Revellata Peninsula, we saw the turn-off to this chapel and thought we might as well take a look seeing we were nearby. The drive up is quite spectacular, with excellent views of the peninsula and its beaches, and also of the interesting rock formations formed by wind erosion over time.
The view at the top is the best! You can see all of Calvi, and a long way north – all the beautiful bays and beaches. Wow.
The Chapel itself is also gorgeous. It is small and intimate, with predominantly a ‘Mary-blue’ colour. There was a fellow inside selling religious items, but there was no cost to enter and no pressure to buy. He told me I could use the little steps at the back to go up to the choir for a different perspective. The stairway is extremely narrow – more like a spiral ladder – but worth the effort to see some of the higher paintings up close.

The climb up from the center of Calvi is not well-marked and you can easily miss the path. There are a number of forks in the "road" and usually you want to bear left. For most of the path up it is paved but then it becomes entirely dirt and rocky and you wonder, how does anyone come to services at this church? Then you get up there and see that you can also reach it by car from a coastal route via the Punta di la Revellata. I recommend walking back to Calvi using this coastal car route. You can walk it but be wary of cars and walk with the traffic. The views of the Revellata are gorgeous and a literal breath of fresh air from the dusty climb up to the church from the town center.

Catholic Church high up in the old part of town with great walks, alleyways and views. Also some street art worth discovering. Well worth the steps and time.

After a somewhat harrowing drive up the mountain you arrive at the chapelle. The Mary statue atop the huge rock formation is breathtakingly beautiful, as is the view down to Calvi and the sea. Definitely well worth the drive (which is part of the fun).

We walked up from the La Villa Hotel, and found the way with the help of Google maps after a wrong turning. Steep path gets you to the top, and the view of Calvi and the bay is well worth it.

Very nice view, apart from that the route to the site is very unsafe and the terrain near the ND de la Serra is very irregular, so NO strollers. Could benefit with a little restoration.

This is a great place to see the sunset over Calvi. There are panoramic views, a nice sea breeze. Even on a bit of a cloudy day, the view is spectacular.

Lovely place to visit and well worth the the walk. Amazing panoramic views. Nice spot for lunch under shade on stone benches and tables. We combined with a walk to the lighthouse on La Revellata.
