At the end of the 17th century and beggining of the 18th century, the Chapel of Our Lady of Mount Carmel was opened to the Greek colony of Paomia (ancient village near Cargese), threatened by the shepherds of Vico, they fled to Ajaccio. For this reason, it remained the "Chapel of the Greeks", although nowadays, there is not anymore Orthodox mass celebrated in the chapel. A mass is celebrated on Sunday morning.
