One of my favorite churches in the world. This place has a soul! A modern architecture full of symbols: the Renaissance stained glass from the old church destroyed during WW2, the nave shaped like an inverted boat hull, the fish shades. Even if you don’t believe in the myth of Joan of Arc, you are touched by this building.
Truly worth it! We had to wait till 14.00 for the church to open, but wow. We were impressed by its interior design. Be sure to sit in the back and enjoy the silence and beauty of the place, amidst bars and restaurants on the square surrounding the church.
