Until the 50s’ the population comes to this chapel to ask for rain, the orientation of the neighborhood (Nord) brings lot of rain to it.
In order to ask for the erection of the chapel in this specific neighborhood, the inhabitants sent a request to the bishop. Their argument was that Plan des Berthats is a great crossing point!

In his writing ( in « Mémoire sur les antiquités religieuses, civiles, politiques de Manigod», 1852), Abbot Vittoz explained : « We have to admit this is a delightful exaggeration, that would have amused the bishop a lot if he visited the Berthaz ; but that he would have been enlightened by seeing how these good Christians wanted to create there a small prayer house with so much devotion. One that could have substitute parish church that was too far ».
All year round, daily.
