The Notre Dame de Pennafort site is part of an already older and very ambitious project that we do not want to abandon: the restoration of the neo-Byzantine chapel accompanied by its Moorish tower which dominates the spectacular and very crowded Pennafort gorges in every season.
Maintenance work, starting with the roof, must be carried out quickly to avoid damage to the walls and the interior of the chapel. On the other hand, the fragility of the rock which supports the building, revealed by geotechnical studies (in 2010-2011) slows down the decision to make a restoration as we had envisaged it, before a technical, financially acceptable decision is not taken. This high quality property both in terms of landscape and history, without being classified so far, deserves your full support.
Documents are available if you are interested.

THE PENNAFORT GORGES AND THE CHAPEL
Yves Frebourg authorizes us to publish his video of the Gorges of Pennafort and the Chapel, which allows us to admire the beauty of the site and the emblematic importance of the chapel down to the last detail, including the condition of its roof.
Thanks to Yves Frebourg for this testimony
