Stumbled across this charming church while visiting Amboise, the art exhibition was delightful and interesting giving things a very different perspective. Certainly worth the visit. A little gem

Although there remains a small area for worship, with an altar and a chancel, this building is also used for various other public display purposes, including art exhibitions. The interior lacks character, but isn't unpleasant. The exterior is undistinguished.

This church is too small to call it a cathedral, although it has the characteristics of Gothic architecture (groin vaulting, e.g.) It takes less than two minutes to see the whole thing because there in no transept, no narthex and no aisles. It is one...More

Great location on the banks of the Loire. A very bare interior which despite the church's troubles still manages to convey a science of quiet spirituality.

This grand old church is worth a moment to visit. We actually attended a concert, and the majesty of the architecture imbued the music with a special atmosphere. There was standing room only, and the concert was free.
