Collégiale intérieur
Church built in the Southern Gothic style in the 14th century. Built by the Cardinal Arnaud de Via, nephew of Pope John XXII.
The church was originally the chapel of a monastery founded by the Cardinal in the 14th century. The cloister abuts the north side of the church and once served the monastery buildings. When the monastery was destroyed during the French Revolution, the Church became the centre of the Villeneuve parish, and still is today.

In the church there are several works of art, the tomb of the Cardinal de Via, and a copy of the famous Pietà de Villeneuve which now hangs in the Louvre.
