Saint Firmin church

Saint Firmin, patron saint of the village

The church dedicated to Saint Firmin, patron saint of the village, was built in the 18th century.

At that time, Gordes’s population was large and the medieval church became too small and was demolished along with about twenty homes to make room for the church present today. The imposing building looks like a fortress on top of the rock and gives the village its citadel-like appearance.

The interior is remarkable for its wood panelling and colourful murals.

Restoration work was undertaken in 2017 to restore this building to its former glory.
