“We kept returning to this church.”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

The stonecarvings were both intact and ornate. I have always heard about the church before the invention of print, but this one does a fascinating medieval display of what they want you to know about eternity and the place of the gospels. You can't get much more authentic than puddles by the pews after a light rain.

“An interesting church”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Spent a short time wandering around the church and found some of the stained glass good especially one piece in the ceiling in one of the side aisles. Some of the wall painting is in a poor state but you can still get a good idea of the overall effect.

“Just OK”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

If you are traveling around southern France, there are so many other churches that have stronger ambience and iconography.

“the tile-work is amazing”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

The tile-work in this church is really quite good. Take your time to explore more the cloisters and grounds as well.

“Nice”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Although you can't tell from the outside, this is a very nice Church. But as French churches go it's just average. The construction is solid and the stained glass windows appealing but major sections of the interior seem drab. There are a number of quite nice tapestries adorning the church walls and 3 or 4 side sanctuaries with interesting religious sculptures. No admission fee, so the place is worth a visit.
