Provence Sights

Église des Stes-Maries

Fodor's Review

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. The sanctuary is open year-round from 8 am to 7 pm. For €2.50 you can climb up to the terrace for a panoramic view of the Camargue (hours vary depending on the season).
