Vao Church

Historic site and monument, Religious heritage, Church in Île des Pins
  • Admire this colourful church set in the Isle of Pines’ main village and enjoy the stunning view from a short walk away!

  • Topped by a red corrugated metal roof, this colourful mission church dates back to 1860 and has been restored several times. Step inside and you’ll see a magnificent parquet floor and wooden ceiling. The building also has beautiful multicoloured stained glass windows. The presbytery to the right of the church is heritage listed. To enjoy a stunning view, go around the left of the church and climb the path on your left up to Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette. The ten-minute climb is well worth it!
