Vals rock church - Tourism in the Ariège

Dominating the small village of Vals is Sainte-Marie rock church, a mysterious and unusual group of buildings carved out of the rock. Accessible via a staircase built through a cleft in the rock, the building consists of two naves on top of each other and houses some splendid Romanesque frescoes depicting episodes from the life of Christ. The church also has a terrace with a fantastic view over the surrounding countryside and the Ariège Pyrenees. Not to be missed!
