Notre-Dame des Sablons

Beautiful medieval church built in the 13th century during the reign of Louis IX (Saint Louis). There's a statue of St Louis inside the church.

A beautiful, airy, and simple structure typical of a small medieval church. Not in the least ostentatious.

Interesting place, move the vendors and turn the place into model of the old historic reality museum with all the vendors outside of the facility, the many shops and restaurants are interesting but a missed opportunity that could be a huge tourist attraction

Lovely church with unusual church tower and pretty stained glass. They sometimes have live music there - worth popping in.

Very historic and much used local church, in the heart of the town, and with very interesting stained glass.

I was told that you either love or hate the windows. Yes, the windows do remind one of the Matisse cutouts, and I don't hate them, but they don't work for me. Also, on a very hot day, the church was strangely hot inside. I usually love churches, but this one did not hit the spot.

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever visited. Unlike many Catholic churches the inside is plain and simple and lit by the most beautiful windows with simple coloured patterns - they reminded me of the Matisse chapel at Vence but there is no connection. The highlight of the ininterior of Aigues Mortes

The church located on the main square is a delight, celebrating 800 years this year (2014). Beautifully restored with high wood ceilings, lovely chapels on the sides, simple with nice main alter. Only complain was the modern windows. Otherwise a very quiet place to reflect. Light a candle for someone you love. Would go again!

We visited many churches and/or cathedrals this year in France and this one is really on top of my list. This church from the 12th century is very beautiful. The (modern) stained glasses fit very well with this old church and the feeling inside the church is great. I really recommend you to visit and/or to go to the mess.
