Saint Francis of Assisi Church

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Church, 20th C in Grimaud

  • The Ecumenical Church of the lakeside town of Port-Grimaud features stained-glass windows created by Vasarely.

  • François Spoerry, the architect who designed Port-Grimaud, wanted to give this site a real village feel, and decided to establish the church at the heart of the lakeside town.

    Much of his inspiration came from the churches of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in the Camargue.

    The interior of the church is fairly sober. Victor Vasarely’s stained-glass windows depict the sun’s trajectory through the day.
    Port-Grimaud’s creator now rests in his vault inside the church.
