Eglise de Vauvenargues

Eglise de Vauvenargues

Church

Constructed on a primitive church of the 5th century, it was redesigned in the 10th century from which its Romanesque part is derived, then in the 16th century with the addition of lateral chapels. Originally placed under the protection of Saint Sidonius, the first archbishop of Aix-en-Provence, it is currently dedicated to Saint Etienne and Sainte Victoire. Although not visible from the village because of its encashment, it enjoys a magnificent view of the massif of Sainte-Victoire and the castle thanks to a charming belvedere located in front of the court. It contains 9 ex-voto of the nineteenth century.
