Presentation of: SANCTUAIRE NOTRE DAME DU MARILLAIS
Place of pilgrimage since the appearance of the Virgin to St. Maurille, the old chapel was replaced by a sanctuary of majestic proportions built between 1890 and 1913 by the architect Beignet. The square tower of 40 meters high which marks the surrounding landscape is high after the war 14-18. Pilgrims still come to venerate Our Angevine Lady. There are several other hand evocations of the Vendée past, including the stained glass of "Martyrs of the field." Visible and open all year.
