On a three-week trip to France, we visited many medieval churches. What sets the Eglise Notre-Dame des Sablons in Aigues-Mortes apart is the striking stained glass created by Claude Viallat. Beautiful.

French artist Claude Viallat has done a superb job with the stained glass of the church. It may be significant to know that this church in in Gothic style and dates back to the Crusade of Saint Louis (around 1250), but the reason to visit today – except for religious purposes, of course - is unquestionably the magical light and...

After visiting the overblown cathedrals in Spain it was a pleasure to enter this unpretentious yet lovely church that seemed modest and attractive, with a very old and historic essence.

Nothing really fantastic in this church. But visiting an old city without visiting the church is non-sens, especially in our Catholic countries, where religion was totally dominating the daily life. The wooden roof as an inverted boat hull is great and interesting. I found the atmosphere inside the church very sereine. Do not know why. Interesting piece of middle age... More

Notre Dame de Sablons is wonderful! A small church, especially special for the unique stained-glass windows. Not the typical stained glass of saints, etc. Theses windows are something to see. The church has done a great job of signage to explain the reasoning behind these windows. Church is also worth seeing, as is the entire small town. This church is... More

Aigues Mortes is certainly a nice place to visit, with the medieval remparts and canals. very charming. the Church Notre Dame des Sablons is not very big, but very sweet and with good historical explanations. It is ideally located on Place St Louis with tons of restaurants and bars.

Well worth a visit, not only for the windows, but the colours are remarkable and the explanation helps to understand their choice.

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
