Combine this with the boat tour and some more short works in neighbouring villages and you get a very good impression of the coast and the rock formations. The chapel is small and tidy and wel kept. Alas some tourists use a less frequented corner...More

This is a lovely little chapel, situated on a penisualar, offering great views and photo opportunities. Interesting to read the history and see the candles lit. Would recommend this as a stop off if doing some sightseeing.
