Discover an emblematic site of Milly-la-Forêt, witness of the past times and grave of Jean Cocteau


Saint-Blaise’s is a chapel from the 12th century. It is the last witness of the existence of a hospital for lepers, where they came to pray by calling St Blaise the healer.

Abandonned during the 18th century, it was then used to random purpose: prison, warehouse, drying room,...

Surrounded by a small botanical garden, it was decorated according to the theme of Medicinal herbs by Jean Cocteau in 1959.
The academician poet lies here, under a huge slab where was engraved his love statement to Milly la Forêt "I stay with you"
