Overview

Based on the plans of the architect Dupoux, the church was built between 1920 and 1947. We can denote a mixture of Roman-Byzantine and eclectism styles. In June the "magistrate's vows" remain a tradition here. Inside is sublime, marble, granite, mosaïques and stained-glass windows mix well. A Pietà (Virgin) signed by the sculptor Louis Botinelly and stained-glass windows by Henri Pinta are well worth the visit.
