Chapelle Saint Marcellin

Boulbon - Monument

The bottle procession takes place in Saint Marcellin Chapel on 1 June every year. On this day, all male residents of Boulbon go to the Chapel carrying a bottle of wine. After the Provençal service, the bottles are blessed. Each participant can then have a sip of wine, while the village police officer distributes glasses to the clergy and the authorities. The wine blessed in the name of the Saint is believed to have beneficial effects against fevers and stomach aches. Saint Marcellin Chapel was built in the pure Romanesque style and dates from the 11th century, apart from the Chapels, which were erected at a later date. In one of the chapels of the primitive parish church is a beautiful 14th century crypt erected by the Lord of the village. Behind the main altar was the Altarpiece of Boubon; this has been sold and is currently on display at the Louvre. Guided visits possible subject to reservation.
