Eglise de Saint-Pierre-les-Martigues

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Church, 19th C in Martigues
  • In the heart of the Saint-Pierre hamlet, the high white steeple of Église de Saint-Pierre emerges from the surrounding pine forest, indicating the presence of the church.

  • A simple visit is insufficient to understand the genesis of this modest work, from the construction which probably dates back to the medieval period, and more than likely on the foundations of a former antique temple...

    It was extensively restored and re-opened on 19 June 2018.
    The church now resembles its appearance at the end of the 19th century. Unpleasant additions were removed and the original harmonious volumes were restored to human proportions.
    Patrice Sales is the heritage...
