From the outside, you'd be forgiven if you overlook this church. However it's definitely worth stepping inside for the amazing stain glass windows and central organ which dominates the space. A must visit (after hitting the slopes of course).

During our Christmas stay in L'Alpe-d'Huez we visited this church and although it looked like a grain silage building from the outside the interior was a revelation. The huge open handed design of the organ behind the altar was impressive. The arched stained glass windows...More

The church had a funny odor but was very beautiful especially the organ. We were lucky and a woman was playing it. It is worth a visit.
