The eastern end of the rock that overlooks the valley was a strategic lookout over the bridge and entry points into the town. A wall-walk was built there, then a church in the mid-15th century.
It was then enlarged (nave and choir in the late 16th century), and embelled until the late 18th century, when many of its decorations were plundered during the French revolution. Finally in the 19th century, the population’s shift towards the valley would result in its liturgical functions being moved to the old Romanesque cathedral. Recent renovations have made it suitable for hosting cultural events.
From the edge of the church square, you have a beautiful view of the Ouvèze valley and the Mont Ventoux.
