Saint‑Francis of Assisi church

in Port Grimaud

Port-Grimaud church, designed by François Spoerry.

A church

of Camargue inspiration

The massive style and the imposing arcatures are reminiscent of the Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer church.

Inside only the nave is sober. Above the platform you can see a series of stained glass windows by Victor Vasarely. The stained-glass windows depict the sun’s trajectory through the day.
