L'Eglise Saint Girons de Monein, Monein

4.9
Built in the 15th century, L'Eglise Saint Girons de Monein took 70 years to complete and served as the largest regional church in its day. It reflected the wealth of the local inhabitants, many of whom constructed the Gothic church with their own hands. Today visitors can tour its famous heart-of-oak frame, an excellent example of medieval architecture. Take time to view its large Baroque altarpiece and 17th-century organ from Toulouse as well.

  • Visit the church of Saint Girons in MONEIN , very interesting inside , especially do not miss the frame, on guided tour to the tourist office, facing the entrance of the porch.

  • The Church is very beautiful, but the story is particularly uninteresting. And the explanation of the construction of the frame is hallucinating. When you know the number of trees to make it. And the notion of ecology at the time because a tree cut = 2 trees planted by family. Hat!

  • A beautiful gothic style church with a single collateral, the thing is not common. The renovated place has two small chapels and you will appreciate the beautiful baroque-style altarpieces. The massive Bell Tower allows access to the beautiful structure, the visit is made by the tourist office, opposite. Pretty bourgade, Monein remains dynamic.

  • Beautiful gothic church. The framing is very beautiful. Many years of work pjis restoration. The concept of the visit is very good. A story told in sounds and lights. We are transported into the universe. Really sublime.
