The parishioners are going to this chapel on Monday before Ascension, the parish priest is blessing the water according to the Saint Grat rite. Everyone is taking the water home to spray it in their house, their garden and their fields to protect them from harmful insects and animals that could destroy the harvest.

In 1803, the inhabitants of Tournance and from the neighborhoods around melted a bell in honor of the Holy Virgin and Saint Claude. On it you can read the motifs of the Virgin and Child and a crucifix. The frame around the painting of the altarpiece is popular art. It was restored with its original colors. The 14 paintings representing the Stations of the Cross were also restored.
