Eglise Notre-Dame des Sablons, 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.

  • What... so this church is beautiful. She wears a story out of the ordinary, for which I am very receptive when I put a foot inside, I was very touched and moved. A beautiful statue of our Roy Louis IX, reigns inside. A little history: the Church of our Lady of the Sablons located inside the medieval of AIGUES-MORTES, in the Gard, was founded in the XIII th century, by St. Louis (Louis IX), King of France Capetian, born 25 April 1214, and died August 25, 1270. It is this church that Louis IX went twice for the 7th crusade in 1248 and the 8 th crusade in 1270 to Tunis, where he died of the plague.

  • Ideally located in downtown, the Church of Aigues-Mortes merit that you spend a bit of time. Framing and stained glass are particularly remarkable.

  • It is a small church whose façade invites you to enter. The brightness of the interior leaves you impressed, precious stained glass windows and altar. Recommended.

  • Again, the modern art of a so-called artist without any talent to invite Orafi somewhere to spoil the Visual and spiritual. I thought that we could do worse than relieves and the stained glass windows of conch, it is done. You come out sooner you went. Go rather to the beautiful church of Saintes-Maries of the sea to admire the real work of stained glass artists.

  • 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!
