    One can see that space is tight in Monaco when visiting this church, a road bridge just above it, during the F1 Grand Prix tyres and equipment just in front off it.
    This votive chapel dedicated to the Patron Saint of the Principality and to the Prince and his family was built in the XI century in the Vallon des Gaumates, at the entrance to which the frail skiff carrying the Saint sank in the IV century.
    On January 26 every year, at dusk, a boat is burnt on the square in front of the chapel as part of the ceremonies of a traditional religious festival that still has its fervent devotees.
