The Chapelle Notre Dame de Lourdes, built by Catholic missionaries after they arrived on the island in in 1858, is perched on the cliff overlooking the Bay. The building is crowned by a cast iron statue of St Mary. History has it that in the late 19th Century a cyclone blew off the roof together with the statue, which ended up in the sea, hundreds of feet below. A sports diver re-discovered it and it was reclaimed from the ocean and man-handled to the top of the cliff where it was once again reinstated at the top of the chapel.
Awesome hill to get panoramic photos from. Walk to top of hill can be troublesome for those with walking issues. No lighting as thieves have stolen solar lighting that was installed to light the pathway on dusk.
