Abbatiale de Saint-Gilles

Built at the end of the 12th century, the abbey church is a real architectural jewel. In the past, it was very popular with pilgrims from all over the world. Today, the monument is listed as a World Heritage Site as part of the "Pilgrimage Route to Santiago de Compostela in France" series.
