I would not have made a special trip to Sanary just to see the church but it was surprisingly beautiful inside. Lots of colourful murals which gave it a very happy feel. Some nice stained glass windows as well. Pure roman architecture in style. Very...More

Lovely little church that was restored in 2000, with beautiful Orthodox Christian inspired Frescoes. The bell tower can be seen from sea and houses an ancient bell from 1734. Worth stopping in to visit.

When you walk through the doors you'll be surprised at the interior design, structure and frescos. Definately worth stopping by for a look-see (and a prayer).

Spectacular Christian Iconography. Beautiful Catholic Church in the centre of Sanary. Great to see a church that depicts these ancient Christian frescos.

This relatively small church is filled with good quality religious frescos and certainly worth a visit.
