At the top, stands a statue of the Sacred Heart of 2.60 meters. The interior houses frescoes. The ten scenes represented retrace the history of the chapel and explain the object and practices of devotion to the Sacred Heart. Architectural reduction of the Montmartre Basilica, this chapel is nicknamed the "Breton Montmartre".
