  • This church dedicated to St-Gilles has a beautiful façade which unfortunately during our visit in restoration and was thus largely to our eye was tapped. It was a place of pilgrimage on the way to Santiago de Compostela. The Church was partially destroyed in the wars of religion and was formerly larger and adjacent to a monastery. Remnants of the old choir with spiral staircase are still outside the Church. Access Church is free. The crypt (€3 input) is definitely worth by its enormous size (50 m x 25 m) and by the grave of St-Gilles which relics in the Church are present. Great free parking in proximity is referred to

  • September 16, 2017, the heritage day we arrive at 5: 25 p.m. at the Abbey Church of St. Gilles from Gard after 26kms to market. We are denied access to the crypt because it closes 5.30 pm. We are really disappointed and find abnormal could not enter that place while we arrived before closing. 5 mins us would have enough.

  • Beautiful Abbey that is worth trying. Place of pilgrimage, and ceremonies. Here, the Camargue expresses, proud of its traditions.

  • The uselessness of the guide was matched only by his ignorance. She spluttered a wave explanation and abandons us in the crypt. It opens fine. It is distressing in a place which we are told that it is the fourth place of the largest pilgrimage among Catholics.
