What is most striking to a visitor entering the damp, dark, and forbidding fortress-church Église des Stes-Maries is its novel character. Almost devoid of windows, its tall, barren single nave is cluttered with florid and sentimental ex-votos (tokens of blessings, prayers, and thanks) and primitive artworks depicting the famous trio. Another oddity brings you back to the 21st century: a sign on the door forbids visitors from entering torso nu (topless). For €2.50
you can climb up to the terrace for a panoramic view of the Camargue.
