Church Saint-Michel - Monument in Malaucène

The Saint-Michel church is located at Malaucène, in the Vaucluse, 18 km north of Carpentras. It was built from the end of the 11th century at the initiative of Pope Clement V. The specificity of the church is to belong to the fortified walls of the city. This is why it presents elements of medieval military architecture (machicolations are visible at the level of the facade, for example).

During the wars of religion, the church is strengthened again and in the seventeenth century, the choir and the gallery are rebuilt, thus finalizing a construction site that remained unresolved for several centuries.

Ornamentally, despite its fortified features, the church has an oculus with a polygonal rosette and although it was not completed, the voussoirs of the porch are decorated with sculptures evoking fantastic characters.

Inside, there is a beautiful 1880s sculpted pulpit and an organ dating from 1711, rebuilt identically in 1784.

The church is protected as historical monuments since 1982.

His visit can be included in a discovery tour of the ancient medieval ramparts of this picturesque town built at the foot of Mont Ventoux. Information on +33 4 90 65 22 59.
