Saint Erige Chapel

 This chapel was a place for pilgrimage : People would come praying to St Erige and St Denis, in order to be cured of diseases or even to resurrect children who could not have been baptized in time, in order to baptize them.

Indulgences were given by the popes to the pilgrims who would pray at St Erige in Auron.
