Eglise Sainte Marie-Madeleine
Martigues - Cultural place
Built between 1670 and 1680, it testifies to the prosperity of the city in the 17th century and the attachment of the inhabitants of the Island who participated in its financing.
The facade has two levels separated by a volumetric cornice with modillions. Its lower part is animated by four columns with Corinthian capitals, fluted pilasters and a broken pediment. The upper part is crowned by a triangular pediment.
The tribune organ, built around 1850 by Prosper Antoine Moitessier, is located above the entrance porch of the church.
The sideboard, classified as a historical monument in 1908, is of Italian inspiration, the rich gilded ornaments in leaf, take up decorative elements of the building.
The instrumental part is in the French style of the time with 26 stops, distributed over 2 keyboards as well as pedals and 1500 pipes.
We will pay particular attention to the Virgin and Child (classified as a historic monument in 1908) and the portal, remarkably carved, inside, in addition to a rich painted decoration, the organ of the Montpellier organbuilder Moitessier (1851 ), the tables of the chapels of Michel Serre (1694), the pulpit to preach in walnut (1677).
The 15-year restoration campaign was awarded the heritage ribbon in 2000.
