This church is quite different to other catholic churches I've visited in the past. No display of opulence at all. Like churches ideally should be. However, we were astonished by the very modern windows which are a strong contras to the historical building. Very impressive.

A most unusual building. It was nothing like I expected on the inside from what was outside. The colours on the Windows were quite vivid. It does not have the magnificence of other churches, but is worth a visit

This lovely small town of Aigues-Mortes has a beautiful church at the end of the shopping street and next to the small main square. The most interesting and different aspect of this church is the modern and unusual stained glass windows. It is a small...More

In this little medieval town, 13th century King Louis IX prepared to depart France for the Crusades. He was a religious man who later was canonized. The church is made of stone, relatively simple in design, and impressive for its arches and its age. I...More

Having not read any reviews about this church I was completely taken by surprise to see the ultra-modern stained glass windows set in such ancient walls. I'm sure they are a matter of considerable debate amongst churchgoers and connoisseurs of church architecture; and at first...More

The contrast between the surprisingly austere medieval church and the modern stained-glass windows makes this an unusual and beautiful building. It's a fully functioning parish church, so be a bit respectful of any worshippers inside.

Impressive medieval church, with a lot of history vibes. Do not miss the little gold/copper chest with St Louis reliques, in the little niche in the wall. The architecture is medieval, but there is a touch of modernism with the stain glass. The roof (ceiling/carpenter)...More

The perfect marriage of old and new. Very special church, older than the walls of the city itself. The light through the glass stained windows of Claude Viallat gives the interior a magic appearance. The same artist is also well known for his windows in...More

The church is an impressive building, but it has very few decorations. Inside there are very few objects of decoration, but the windows certainly catch the eye. They shine in bright colours. The wooden ceiling is also quite special.

If you enjoy viisting European churches then this is a must stop. I cannot remember visiting another with a wooden roof. The windows are also unusual. Walk around the outside as you will see interesting detail.
