Overview

Founded in 1633, this monument, partly destroyed during the Revolution, extended over 27 acres. Designed by Tom Berger, the 3 nave church, built in 1680, was dedicated to Saint-Marie-Magdeleine in 1702. The façade is composed of two superposed orders, ionique and corinthian and even after the damage caused by the Revolution, its interior has preserved its powerful and austere architecture. This church became a parish in 1803.
