Long Description:
FR:
Une église désaffectée et peut-être abandonnée à son sort sur la rive droite du Rhône au bout de la route de l’église de Barcarin, la bien nommée. Suivre "cimetière"
Eglise construite en 1858 consacrée sous le vocable de Saint-Trophime. Elle accueillait les sauniers avant le développement de Salin de Giraud et la construction d’une nouvelle église dans le village.
En 1713, la première église fut emportée par le Rhône
En pierre de Fontvieille, elle est ornée des statues de la Sainte Famille, le tympan est finement sculpté.
Le clocher est un joli campanile abritant l’unique cloche. Le toit est en tuiles romanes.
