Long Description:
FR Cette chapelle est située près du village de Châteauroux, en bordure de la déviation de la N94.
Le hameau de Sainte-Catherine existait déjà au 13ème siècle sous le nom de « Foresta Sancta Catharina » avec probablement un sanctuaire.
Plus ancienne que sa voisine, la chapelle de Saint- James, elle date probablement du 14ème siècle. Ces deux chapelles sont de même style architectural et les mêmes matériaux ont été utilisés pour leur construction : galets de la Durance et lauzes du pays. .
Sur le plan cadastral napoléonien, un cimetière se trouvait à proximité.
En ruine au cours du 19ème siècle, les habitants restaurèrent la chapelle. Elle fut rendue au culte et bénie par le curé de la paroisse en 1882.
De nouveau ruinée au cours du 20ème siècle, sa restauration fut entreprise par l’association Pro.si.pa. fondée en 1988 : l’abside fut consolidée et couverte. La restauration de la nef reste aujourd’hui inachevée.
EN This chapel is located near the village of Châteauroux, on the edge of the deviation of the N94.
The hamlet of Sainte-Catherine already existed in the 13th century under the name of “Foresta Sancta Catharina” with probably a sanctuary.
Older than its neighbor, the Chapel of Saint James, it probably dates from the 14th century. These two chapels are of the same architectural style and the same materials were used for their construction: pebbles from the Durance and slate from the country. .
On the Napoleonic cadastral plan, a cemetery was nearby.
In ruins during the 19th century, the inhabitants restored the chapel. It was returned to worship and blessed by the parish priest in 1882.
Ruined again during the 20th century, its restoration was undertaken by the association Pro.si.pa. founded in 1988: the apse was consolidated and covered. The restoration of the nave remains unfinished today.
