    Behind its 19th century façade, Saint Denis parish church conceals a great Romanesque nave and a beautiful Gothic chancel. In the side-naves, woodwork and paintings by Mignard adorn the different altars of the rural brotherhoods. The eyes are drawn to the bell tower, which was originally a 'watch tower'. Until the Revolution, the church, the only important 'public space', was a place where the public could come together. Its architecture follows the town's demographic growth. This place

    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.

    Albaron Church existed in the Middle Ages and depended on the château of the same name. It was originally dedicated to Saint Vincent and became a parish church in 1230. It was ruined by the Religious Wars and rebuilt in 1638. It was paid for by the faithful, thanks to the resolve of Archbishop Aubert de Barrault and donations from Don Antoine de Rampelle. It was destroyed during the Revolution. The current church was built in 1884.

    Don't miss St Maxime Church with its 11th or 12th century Provençal Romanesque nave, its apse and Gothic-style northern side-aisle, as well as the two Romanesque chapels which form a pseudo-transept. The origin of the Chapel of Christ (a regional Historic Monument) is controversial; some authors believe it to be Paleo-Christian. It received the 'Ruban du Patrimoine' award in 2003.

    Saint Michel de Frigolet Abbey (12th-14th century), in the heart of the unspoilt landscape of La Montagnette, takes its name from the many thyme bushes ('ferigoulo' in Provençal) that dot the hills. In 1133, a community of St Augustine canons settled in Frigolet; the current heart of the monastery dates from this period - the cloister (early 12th century), Saint Michel Church (12th century) and the small Notre Dame du Bon Remède Chapel (11th century).

    This 18th century building is located on the site of a mediaeval chapel of the same name, which was facing ruin and also too small. In 1740, the construction of a new church was entrusted to the Tarascon master builder Antoine Damour, according to plans by the architect Jean-Baptiste Franque, who created the arch system. The Classical-style façade is made from Beaucaire stone. Architectural description:
