Chapel Saint-Clément

Monument in Gorze

This beautiful little chapel and its belfry was built in 1603 by Mangin Chavais archpriest and native Gorze. She was sacked during the War of 30 years and has since miraculously escaped destruction.

The wall and table located in front of the chapel is an altar surmounted by a niche containing and carrying a cartridge from 1582. It says "Leprosy", because in the Middle Ages, Masses were celebrated for patients isolated in the leprosarium at the top of the opposite side of the valley (Mont St Blin or Belin), close to the current golden blank overlooking the village. They could attend Masses and without contaminating the officiating and the village population who attended.

A former enclosed cemetery where soldiers killed during the war of 1870 was based behind the altar of the Leper. They were exhumed and transported to the present city cemetery.
