Le Corbusier built the chapel in 1955. Jean Prouvé added the bell tower in the seventies and more recently, in 2011, Renzo Piano has worked on the site creating architectural harmony between the Chapel, the Bell Tower and the monastery of Sainte-Claire de la Porterie.

Despite being far away from Africa and the Americas, with as sole image of a black man the picture of one of the Three Kings in the local church, on the 19th of March 1789 the 2000 inhabitants of Champagney decided to ask for the abolition of slavery. They petitioned King Louis XVI through the Register of Grievances. The House helps you to understand the past, present and future of this struggle. It is one of 5 sites on the Abolition Trail (see website below).
