    The Organ Chest: in 1982, the organ-builder Pascal Quoirin carried out the latest renovation. Considered one of the masterpieces of contemporary organ-making, this magnificent organ chest allows the Organa Festival to be held here, bringing together the best large organ players from around the world from July to September every year. This Festival, whose free concerts take place every Saturday at 5.30 p.m. in July, August and September, is exceptional due to the superb acoustic quality and the virtuosity of the performers.

  • Tmbeau de Frédéric Mistral - Heritage

    Frédéric Mistral had his tomb built in 1907, before his death in 1914; it is a very faithful replica of the Pavillon de la Reine Jeanne in Les Baux-de-Provence. On the bell which sounded his death-knell and announced his loss, there is an engraving of a 1907 poem called 'Moun toumbéu' (My tomb'). It was engraved several days before his death and it was when Mistral went to admire the sculptor's work in the church that he caught a chill and died. Architectural description

    Saint Honorat Abbey in Tarascon was founded in accordance with the wishes of a layman, Rostaing de Gantelme; having survived the massacre of the Sicilian Vespers in 1282, he ended up in the Lérins Islands, opposite the city of Cannes, while fleeing the Italian coast. There was a Clunisian monastery on the islands at the time, founded by Honorat of Arles in the 5th century. Rostaing de Gantelme swore to found a Benedictine monastery to prove his gratitude to God. He was not to fulfil his promise, which was not executed until 1352, by his grandson Jean, Seneschal of Provence.

    Mas-Thibert Church was consecrated in 1857 and dedicated to Saint Honorat. It is the only church in the commune to be built by the architect Henri Révoil. Mas-Thibert Church changed location three times before moving here. The building we can see today was constructed in the late 19th century and consecrated in 1900. It is still used today and houses a number of remarkable relics and statues. A 14th century wooden Christ was discovered there in 1995; it is now at the Réattu Museum in Arles.

    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 Pierre-ès-Liens, the commune's parish church, is built in the Classical style. Construction began in 1695, as the former Saint Pierre-ès-Liens parish church had become too small to accommodate the villagers due to the growth of the village (growth due in part to the operation of the quarries from the 15th century).

    Visitors are often surprised by the imposing size and impressive Classical façade of this building, which was constructed in 1754. The pulpit jutting out from the pillar, the walnut woodwork of the ambulatory and the 19th century marble altar are all remarkable features which justify the Church's classification as a Regional Historic Monument.

    The Monks' Chapel of Saint Césaire Abbey, founded in the 6th century by the Bishop of the same name, Saint Blaise Church is of interest to historians and archaeologists alike. It was mainly built in three stages, starting in the 12th century, but earlier remains have been found. It was deconsecrated during the Revolution and had a range of different utilitarian uses, before being excavated in 1972 and 1982.
