Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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!

  • 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
