The church which stands here today was finished in 1197 about the same time as those in Arles and St. Gilles, but the church in Tarascon has bee much rebuilt, even after 1944. The nave was changed to 5 bays with two aisles on each side in the 14C. A fine belfry was added in the 15C and more. The entrance to the church is on the south side and remains Romanesque with sculpted decorations but an unadorned tympanum. The important crypt was built in the 17C.
