The chapel Initially, this chapel was the private chapel of the convent of the Daughters of Charity, built in 1815, when their convent was established there. Following the alleged Marian apparitions to Catherine Labouré in 1830, and with the very rapid success of the miraculous medal from 1834, the chapel was gradually enlarged and opened to the public, becoming an important place of pilgrimage. Today, the chapel is visited by two million visitors a year, making it one of the ten most visited cultural places in Paris. The chapel, in the Art-Nouveau style, has a quadrangular plan consisting of a nave flanked by simple aisles ending with a very shallow choir.
The organ In this Marian shrine, very popular since the 19th century, the Maison Cavaillé-Coll built an instrument around 1880 (the archives also speak of the installation of an organ of 12 stops in 1865 by Cavaillé - is that the same?). He endowed the organ with a buffet inscribed in his catalogue (number 18). Used daily, it underwent two maintenance works in 1974 and 2006. Photogallery : Victor Weller
