    This Oratory, constructed in 1954, commemorates the 1854 miracle and gives thanks for the healing of Maillane residents during a cholera epidemic. Cholera was rife in the commune during August of that year and many people of all ages died. Some people fled the village and only 100 remained out of a population of 1,500. On 28 August 1854, a few people brought out the Madonna of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and formed a procession. The Madonna was wearing a violet dress at the time.
