A ghastly eyesore desecrating an historic square, blocking out all views, dominating and overwhelming. Difficult to see where one would enter this building. It has been left, like the rest of the city, to fall into gross disrepair. Its design in the first place always...More

This Church although modern has safeguarded medieval windows that do compare with some at Chartres. Quiet midst the market.

I've been fascinated with Joan of Arc since I was a young girl, so to stand where she met her young death was an incredibly moving experience. Fresh food markets are nearby as well as a selection of cafés and restaurants.

This building is an archetectural delight! Very interesting. We loved the interior of the church with it's circular design and beautiful windows. The history behind it is quite interesting too.

A modern church with a rich history. It's modern architecture with beautiful large stained glass windows. The ceiling was constructed with bowed wood similar to a ships hull. Go early so the crowds are less. This way you can sit and admire the windows.

It is quite small and modern style church. I love the curved line of the church. It is on city center so easy to find ( maybe u can't miss it.). The toillet is free and clean.
