Long Description:
A former priory belonging to Saint-Paul de Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, the twelfth-century building is characteristic of the Baussenque buildings in its southern half-troglodytic part. The large nave vaulted in cradle was extended to the East in 1609 without breaking the Romanesque harmony of the whole.

Inside, there are modern stained-glass windows by Max Ingrand (1960) donated by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, marquis of Baux from 1944 to 1958.
