The Saint-Baudile Church

It dates back to the 12th Century and is listed as a Monument Historique., It was built during the 5th Century on a Roman villa of which some traces still can be seen.

During the 12th Century, there was a first enlargement with the apse, the nave, the dome and the bell-tower. It was followed with a series of constructions that spread out over the 20th. This building is a perfect expression of the Provençal Romanesque style and has been restored since 1989.

The bell-tower has also been modified and new bells were installed, which allowed the creation and the composition of an antiphonary.
