The 18th century Saint Vincent church, a veritable basilica of 2300 m² is home to Pierre Cochereau’s own Grand Organ.

This organist was the holder of the Great Organs of Notre-Dame de Paris from 1955 to 1984. He owned an organ with 70 stops on 5 keyboards, including one part made up of the 5000 pipes of the Roquevaire church organ.

The Roquevaire organ is reputed to be one of the world’s best instruments. 

You can discover it in Roquevaire’s Saint-Vincent Church, particularly during the International Organ Festival which takes place every year at the beginning of autumn.

Open during the church service on Wednesday and Sunday mornings.
Entrée Libre.
