Eglise Saint Vincent de Paul

 This church is often referred to as the reform church, because it stands on the former site of the Augustine Reform Monks land. This church is a great example of Gothic revival in southern France, built on 1855-88 by architect F. Reybaud. The interior decoration was never fully completed, and the church still to this day is constantly subject of various renovation projects. Photo by Byunguh Yu & Byunggu Yu on 08 November 2007.
