historic monument

The church of San Vicente de Nyons is located inside the medieval town center of the city. It is a very important and historic monument, which was first mentioned in the tenth century, but the building has been rebuilt several times, and what you see now dates back to the seventeenth century.

The religious wars damaged the old building and the church had no choice but to to re-build it. Inside, you can admire various valuable works of art from the first half of the seventeenth century, and from a convent of cloister monks. Two paintings are inspired by Caravaggio, representing the scene from the Adoration of the Shepherds. There is a also a painting by Guillaume Perrier, called the Two families of Christ.
