This church is nice but not exceptional. What is more interesting is the landscape view all around the Chapelle as it is located at the very top of the Cap d'Antibes.

If you are looking for a quiet place away from the crowded beaches, visit the Chapelle de la Garoupeon top of a hill. The chapel has a very modest exterior, but inside it is filled with marine history like small boats hanging from the ceiling, sea paintings and remembrance plaques of people long gone. Certainly worth a visit. Next to the chapel is a small café,good for a drink or a light lunch. As this hill is the highest point of Cap d’Antibes you have grand views of Antibes and the Mediterranean Sea as well. Accessible by car or walking uphill along the Calvary path, which makes for a lovely hike.

We walked up to this chapel the other day as we had some spare time to fill. The chapel itself if very pretty although we didn't go inside as there was a service taking place. It is a shame you can't go up the lighthouse but the views are fab none the less.
We walked up from the Port de Salis side as recommended on here.
I am certainly not fit but managed the walk ok.
As others have said, I do recommend decent footwear, my £8 Accessorize flip flops were not really up to the job but as they were pretty much the only footwear I had with me on our break I had to make do! :)

We have driven up here and walked up the steep and extremely stony path a couple of times and only once has the wonderful chapel been open!it was only then that we learnt of the men who carry the statue of Mary (?) down to the town centre BAREFOOT!! And then carry it back after a few days....the views are spectacular from up here and well worth the visit even if the chapel is closed.

Accessible by car or walking, The dirt track is not called Calvary for nothing so if walking you need to be fit, but the views from the top are stunning and well worth the effort. There is so much history in the tiny church. There is a cafe and pleasant garden nearby now. I am not sure of the hours of opening so best to check first.
