Chapel of our Lady of Beauregard

Orgon - Monument

This ancient celto-Ligurian oppidum was a religious center well before the Christian era, as evidenced by the numerous remains of cults such as the Gallo-Roman altars exposed today in the lapidary Museum of Avignon. They honoured the Greco-Roman deities. In 1878 the Bonnard Canon, cure Dean of Orgon, had built on the site of the old place of worship the present Chapel. It housed a wooden statue of the Virgin which was a miraculous spell: after having been precipitated by the Baron des Adrets on 8 September 1562, at the bottom of the cliff, it remained intact and only the ear of the child Jesus bore a mark. An atoning monument, erected in the gardens, commemorates this miracle. Other miracles followed. The faithful dedicated ex-votos and organized many pilgrimages and processions by the path of the oratories. This statue is now in the parish church. The way of the cross in the Chapel is the work of a famous sculptor of the 19th century Louis-Félix Chabaud. The cupolas in stone size, perfectly adjusted on a moulding in a now defunct technology, demonstrate architectural know-how of the companions of the 19th century. The monastery, which replaced the secular Chapel, was built between 1638 and 1660 and hosted until 1789 the Discalced Augustinians. We visit the ex-votos, the village Museum and temporary exhibitions room.In the walled enclosure of 1592, the monumental cross of the brotherhood of the grey Penitents of Avignon, who received the blessing of Pope Pius X, on 20 August 1903 evokes the religious fervour of the faithful.
