“Beautiful church in the historic French Quarter”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We visited the church on 24th Dec. 2012 and they were just putting some more lights up. The church looked like it had been given a fresh coat of paint recently. Worth visiting to understand the city's colonial past and how it got interwoven with other parts of the town's history.

“A very Beautiful Church - a must see for all.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

a very beautiful Pink colored Church with its literature hung on the walls. Sit down and listen to the French carols they sing in the evenings. it is so soothing. Morning mass at about 6.30am is a good way to begin your day. I stayed close by at the LA Christophe and would visit this Church morning and evening. no matter what your state of mind before, but after you come out you have this sense of calmness, gratitude and strength to overcome anything in life.
this is the only Church in the vicinity I believe that holds French masses even today.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

You won't miss this church if you're in Pondicherry, as it looks over the sea promenade. It is a mix of Portugese and French characteristics and has the same colourful style as many South Indian churches. Go inside, as the inside is even better than the outside. Quiet, peaceful, and extremely colourful unlike many European churches.
