It was built in the 12th century, but its architecture has often been reworked. Its nave still has Romanesque features; more recent developments have been added, particularly the bell tower and the façade. The church's furniture is particularly rich.

    This was originally known as the Chapelle des Pucelles or the Chapelle des Vierges. This chapel has, of course, paid the traditional homage to time and undergone a series of transformations which have made it even more interesting. Don't miss the relatively rudimentary bas-relief tympanum representing the theme of Adam and Eve, the serpent and the tree of life. Remarkably, the tree of life is represented by a fig tree.

    On the ancient site of Ernaginum, at the crossroads of the Via Agrippa and the Via Domitia, which later became a mediaeval stronghold, the 12th century Saint Gabriel Chapel and the former 13th century Château still testify to the site's prestigious past. A masterpiece of southern Romanesque architecture, the interior of the chapel offers visitors a wealth of sculptures.

    Saint Michel Chapel, or the Chapel of the White Penitents, is the oldest monument in Cabannes. Constructed in the 12th century, it was abandoned in the 15th and then occupied by the Brotherhood of White Penitents in 1633; the Brotherhood restored it and remained there until 1920. Half a century later, in 1974, Jean Girard, grandson of the Brotherhood's last Prior, launched an appeal to all the people of Cabannes; this appeal was heard and the chapel was perfectly restored both inside and out.

    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.
