Panoramic tour of the Church Terrace

Visite Panoramique de la terrasse de l’Eglise

Built near the mouth of the Little Rhone, the church of Saintes Maries de la Mer had an important strategic position.
Because, at the time of its construction in the IX and XII centuries, pirates raged on the coast
and it was necessary to defend against invasions. The church dominates the village and is visible from 10 km inland.
It is a veritable fortress, consisting of a single, straight, and unadorned nave, 15 metres high.
The roof is surrounded by a rampart wall, with battlements and machicolation serving as watchtower.

From this walkway, you can enjoy an exceptional 360° panoramic view
of the Alpilles mountain range on beautiful, luminous days...
