    Sambuc Church was part of a commission issued in 1636 by Monseigneur de Barrault for the construction of six parish churches in Camargue. The Bishop wanted to fight against the de-Christianisation of the region. Its façade was rebuilt in 1656 and its roof was replaced at the end of the 19th century. Nothing remains of the original altars, baptismal fonts and sculpted fonts made of dressed stone. A second construction was attached later when the nave was extended.

    Placed at the entrance to villages, on squares and at crossroads, crosses were seen daily by field workers and travellers, merchants and soldiers, who all hoped to receive protection and favours from them. They were objects of respect and received many visitors, who maintained them and decorated them with flowers. Even the most remote crosses were visited annually by parishioners during the fondly remembered 'Rogation' processions.
