The largest church in the town of Monien, Saint Girons de Monien took about 70 years and seven generations of men to construct. It was built in the honour of Saint Girons who was one among the seven holy saints of the 5th century who evangelized the Novempopulania or the ‘Land of the Nine tribes’.

  • Although having undergone numerous transformations from the time it was built in the year 1530, the church still retains a large baroque styled altarpiece and a 17th century organ from Toulouse.
  • But out of all the attractions in the church, perhaps the most significant one for what the church is known for, is its “Heart of Oak’. A Medieval styled arched Hallway with its roof constructed entirely by using a thousand Oak trees.
