Iberville Parish has a spot in Ripley's Believe It or Not for its beloved Madonna Chapel as the smallest church in the world. Built by an Italian farmer Anthony Gullo in 1924, the chapel is 9' x 9'. Mass is celebrated from the chapel once a year on August 15, the Catholic Feast of the Assumption. The chapel is open daily for those who wish to visit and enjoy its solitude. The key is kept in the mailbox.
