  • Oratory located in the hamlet of Notre Dame des Maures in La Londe les Maures.

  • The 1788 map of Cassini mentions a chapel in this district.
    It no longer appears on the 1828 land register.
    To overcome visitors' concerns about the absence of a religious building in such an evocative place, the dean of the hamlet had this oratory built in 1995.
    6 oratories out of 8 listed in La Londe testify to a strong Marian devotion in Provence.
    The oldest, dated 1869, also honours Our Lady of the Moors. Difficult to access today, until the 1940s, it was the object, on August 15...

    The oldest, dated 1869, also honours Our Lady of the Moors. Difficult to access today, until the 1940s, it was the object, on August 15 and All Saints' Day, of a Rogations procession dedicated to the divine blessing of cultures.
    Starting from the church of La Nativité, it passed through two missing oratories along the RD 88, before reaching that of ND des Maures.
