Overview

Originally, this was a Dominican convent church built at the end of the 16th century. Dedicated in 1619 to the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin, the church then became a parish in 1803 dedicated to Saint Cannat, a former Marseille bishop. Inside is a superb organ case(1746-1749), the high alter of Fossaty (1755) as well as canvases by Michel Serre, all of which contribute to its historical heritage.
