Chapel of the Martyrs in Vérolliez
According to local tradition, they were executed on the large stone slab preserved on its canopy, inside the chapel. The first written reference to the veneration of the place of their martyrdom can be found in the deed of foundation of the Abbey (in 515), which was only written some time later, around 800 CE. The document is believed to have been drawn up in virorum fletu, i.e. in a place close to the Abbey, whose name translates as "the tears of men": the place where people wept over the death of the martyrs. In the Middle Ages, in virorum fletu became Viroleto, or Vérolliez. According to popular belief, however, the etymology of Vérolliez is the "vrai lieu" ("true place") of the martyrdom.
