Eglise Saint Denis

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Church, Roman in Châteaurenard

    the public could come together. Its architecture follows
    the town's demographic growth. This place
    of worship, prayer and refuge in times of war, was also the site
    of the first Republican elections! In 2008, the Chapel located
    in Saint Denis Church was renovated; it contains statues
    of the Three Marys surrounded by a pictorial landscape
    relating the main events in the life of the Virgin.
