Well kept exterior and exceptionally pretty bell tower. The interior is rather dark and musty so viewing is not essential

Sitting on the top area of Villefrance is this quaint old church overlooking the port. Really nice paintings and an intimate feeling

I highly recommend visiting in the morning as with the doors open you get to see sunlight reflecting off the Alter.

A nice quiet place up an incline from the front and is a bit of a climb. Must have been beautiful in its day but shows some signs of wear and tear. Still, well worth a visit if you pass by.

Had a look inside this lovely church whilst walking around Villefranche. Hidden away up an incline. Plenty of lovely shops around here. Fascinating back streets to explore.

This is a nice church to visit if you are in Villefranche. It is accessed by a steep lane from the harbour.

We chanced upon the Church while discovering the narrow lanes of Villefranche offering options of food, souvenirs and basic grocery. It was a simple but lovely church and could be accessed through the steps climbing up from one of the old narrow lanes. The interiors...More
