Built on a historical site, this church has been built and rebuilt over the centuries. In the sixth century this site was the location of a church, monastery and gardens, and has maintained its religious focus. The basic building seen in the photo dates from 1621 and has seen many individual architectural embellishments in the past 400 years. Under Napoleon III, a Gothic façade was added by the architect Constant-Dufeux.
I will bring you back for the exquisite details of the interior of this active church.
