Create an itinerary including Eglise Notre-Dame des Sablons
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.

  • Eglise Notre-Dame not too be missed. The town of Aigues-Mortes is off the tour track, but well worth a stop. It is steeped in history and lots of things to explore. The church was very interesting.

  • The church was destroyed by the protestant and the war. Original stained-glass windows were replaced by modern one very HORRIBLE. L'église a été détruite par les guerres de religion et les vitraux...

  • Beautiful church rich in history. It feels very special when you're inside and it's not pretentious.
  • This church was the church the Knights Templar visited before they set sail for the crusades. I personally feel very comfortable visiting here and go there to give thanks. To walk in the footsteps of great Christian knights is an honour for me.
