This is a fortified church situated on a hilltop. The climb up to it from the city centre is pretty steep and the last part of the route is over rough stones - definitely not wheelchair accessible. The church would have made a rather tough place to attack in the middle ages. Its being restored at the moment and has been for some time. Because of the restorations its only possible to visit the nave at the moment. The quire can be glimpsed through a pair of locked glass doors. Of not in the interior are some wall paintings, an ancient organ sat on what appears to be the prow of a boat that's crashed through the west wall, and a rather curious bridge across the nave high up near the vaulting. An interesting enough church to visit but for me the real star is the panoramic view over Sion and the Rhone Valley from the western battlements . There's a small museum next to the church which I haven't visited - plus twice a week there are displays of birds of prey from the cliffs east of the church - information and tickets for this are available from the tourist information centre.
