Presentation

Rebuilt in the 17th century, this very sober church was built in the counter-reformation spirit as a reaction to the Baroque period. The classical façade shelters the statue of Gérard Tenque, born in Martigues in 1040 and founder of the Hospitaller Order, otherwise known as Chevaliers of Malta. The statue was sculpted between 1880 and 1890 by Nazaire Bernard, a Martigues builder.
