Chapelle-Viviers is a commune in the Vienne department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in western France.

History[edit]

The settlement is mentioned in the 10th century but in 1452 it is mentioned by a similar name to its current one. The present church dates from 1870. It was paid for by leading local families after the previous small church was going to ruin.[2]
