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.

An old church, stone and wood and almost nothing else. It's quiet and beautiful, just before reaching the busy place with restaurants.

This medieval church was fascinating. From an architecture point of view, is isn't that imposing compared to others in the south of France, but from a historical perspective, it is definitely worth visiting. Right in the town square like a lot of other towns. The whole town of Aigues-Mortes is definitely worth seeing.

Definitely worth a peak into this amazing medieval church. When we peaked in there was a free concert and we ended up staying for the duration.

It's a beautiful and very peaceful church and used to go there quite a lot. The church is well maintained and well structured. If you are in Aigues-Mortes then give it a try, it will be worthy! It will give peace to your mind!
