L'Eglise Saint Girons de Monein, Monein
(5/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
Built in the 15th century, L'Eglise Saint Girons de Monein took 70 years to complete and served as the largest regional church in its day. It reflected the wealth of the local inhabitants, many of whom constructed the Gothic church with their own hands. Today visitors can tour its famous heart-of-oak frame, an excellent example of medieval architecture. Take time to view its large Baroque altarpiece and 17th-century organ from Toulouse as well.

  • A visit to Monein is not complete without a visit here. The guided visit is well worth it and be sure to check out the goodies at the tourism office just across the street. 
  • Visit organised by the tourist office (right side). Interesting and complete explanations. Good show sound and light under the eaves

  • Gothic church of the beautiful XVI. Do not hesitate to climb the 72 steps of the stairs of the stone because the Summit you will be rewarded. The magnificent structure built with 1000 trees awaits you with its double-hulled overturned boat shaped, it is unique in France! With the guide of EO could admire a sound and light and have the history of the construction of this church. Not to be missed if you pass in the Béarn region!
