Eglise Notre-Dame des Sablons, Aigues-Mortes

4.5
#3 of 25 in Things to do in Aigues-Mortes
A Gothic church more than 800 years old, Eglise Notre-Dame des Sablons was used during the French Revolution as a church and barracks. Today people come to see its striking architecture, where rich wood on the ceiling and benches contrasts with the white stone construction. Inside you'll find a carved stone altar, statues of saints, and a richly carved medieval wooden crucifix. It stands as a strong example of Gothic religious architecture.

    The Church is simple and solid goes well with the site and explains the history, from the Crusades to the salt from the sea to the symbols of camargue. Just come in and it feels like another era. Strange phenomenon finally ... in August is much hotter inside and out. Maybe associated with porous material of construction.

    Pretty city church. Beautiful wooden ceiling. Pity that it overshadows all this building, but it's what makes her special.

    Beautiful church to visit: rather broad stripped Interior compared to the length, which gives a sense of vastness and reminds the roman style; beautiful wooden roof, all in a beautiful fluid energy that makes that feels good. Take the time to sit down and feel this place. Just a shame that the windows are not in harmony with the place

    I came well 15 years ago! But where are all the gorgeous genuine stained glass that there was another time? SE present currently are ugly, looks like nothing! There is nothing Catholic in these windows. Looks like drawings of a 3 year old! Such a shame! Where are the real from the time of its construction? Otherwise Church all cute and well preserved!

    Beautiful church of the 13th century, built before the city walls, with a superb set of 32 stained glass of Claude Viallat to replace the nineteenth pastiches

    Original by its stained glass church Our Lady of Sablons is a beautiful gothic church (the oldest monument of Aigues-Mortes .erigee before the ramparts), during the restoration of the building, thirty-one new stained glass windows were designed by Claude Viallat, and made by master glass artist Bernard Dhonneur. the stained glass windows in rosette, give the building a light and a special color, the Church is included in the title of historic monuments since December 6, 1949, then closed since August 31, 1990 for his Gallo-Roman altar dedicated to the Virgin under the name of our Lady of Sablons. A person is at the entrance for information (at least on my visit) A visit
