The silent mass…

The “Chapelle des Remparts” was inaugurated in 1922 and dedicated to Notre Dame des remparts for her protection during the Great War when the Germans arrived in Philippeville on the 5th of August 1914. It was originally built and served as a gunpowder magazine located in the third bastion of the town before the walls were taken down by the French.
