The village's name comes from the Church

Lachapelle is one of the most interesting villages of Lomagne.  Its unique Baroque chapel is a very rare and surprising monument in Europe. 

This village stands on the top of a hill in the manner of many typical Gascon villages, it was built in a circular form around the castle. The church is enclosed by the castel building.

The most original elements in the church are the galleries, which are unique in the whole country: they consist of three rows of concave and convex stalls, which remind those of a Venetian style theatre.

Visitors can admire this unique baroque treasure which was restored between 1997 and 1998.
