There is a tower staircase that allows you to pay to go and sit on the roof of the church and admire the fantastic views.
Inside the church are statues and plaques telling the story of the legend of the Saints washed up on the shore from Israel.

Religion aside, the best thing about the church is the view from the top. For a few euros you can climb to the top and have a spectacular view of the area. Luckily there are separate stairs for up and down so there is no awkward passing. The church itself is rather plain but that actually adds to the feeling of timelessness.

A medieval church, simple but beautiful. It is a very unique church because it has a wall surrounding it and 4 towers as a fortress. The special thing about it is that you can climb to the roof ( about 6€ fee for adults, children free) stairs are narrow but not too long. Very much worth the climb because you get a wonderful view of La Camarge.

Although one side was under renovations, the Church is nice, there is a possibility to climb up the stairs and go to the roof top from which opens a beautiful view of the the city and its whereabouts

The church itself it is not very spectacular, but it is in the middle of a town with low buildings and you can see it from far. It also has a great story and it a good shelter to hide from the afternoon burning sun. It is worth visiting. Beware of gipsy fortunetellers around, they can be very insistent..
