Beautiful old church in this lovely town. The fact that it remains true to its origins makes it very charming. The carving of the Christ made by a gallery slave

This is a nice church in the town, easy to walk to. The altar area is very nice. Small, but if you're interested in churches worth a peek.

A very pretty building , in a very pretty Old Town , its a bit of a climb up a lot of steps to it , but well worth the effort

Every European village has a beautiful old church - Villefranche is no exception! Located in the heart of the old town on a steep hill, it is beautifully decorated church with wonderful paintings, statues, and altar. Worth the climb up the hill.

Well kept exterior and exceptionally pretty bell tower. The interior is rather dark and musty so viewing is not essential

Sitting on the top area of Villefrance is this quaint old church overlooking the port. Really nice paintings and an intimate feeling

I highly recommend visiting in the morning as with the doors open you get to see sunlight reflecting off the Alter.

A nice quiet place up an incline from the front and is a bit of a climb. Must have been beautiful in its day but shows some signs of wear and tear. Still, well worth a visit if you pass by.

Had a look inside this lovely church whilst walking around Villefranche. Hidden away up an incline. Plenty of lovely shops around here. Fascinating back streets to explore.
