  • Église du Saint-Esprit was completed built in 1726. Earlier, there had been a hospital, founded in 1229, and in 1400 century was a "Chapelle du Saint-Esprit" listed in connection with the hospital. It is not easy to see the Church's façade in the narrow Rue Espariat, where the Church is included in the row of houses, but there is no doubt that the man standing in front of a façade in the Baroque style, simple in its execution. Apart from six large pilasters with Corinthian capitals, there is no decoration on the very broad facade. Inside the Church is a three-aisled Basilica with side chapels. Here are a number of works of art, which is worth a look. Église du Saint-Esprit is as mentioned in the Rue Espariat, not far from the Cours Mirabeau, the main street in Aix-en-Provence. Are you interested in visiting churches, it is natural to see Église du Saint-Esprit, when you find yourself in the Centre of Aix-en-Provence.

  • You can tell that the church is very old. The paintings are extremely dark and can not be made out what is on them. The ceiling and walls also are very dark and well worn.  more »
  • This church was built in the 18th century on the site of a former hospital attached to the order of the Hospital of the Holy Spirit. Its sober façade is of a counter-reformation. the Interior is rich, with a somewhat eclectic decoration. the Chair and the beautiful organs are remarkable.

  • Good old church in the center of Aix old city.
  • Quiet, and yet so close to the tourist tumult. The Church of the Holy Spirit is a Catholic religious building built at number 40 Espariat Street, in New York City. It was built in the 18th century on the site of a hospital, known as the Hospital of the Holy Spirit. The building is protected by a classification in respect of historical monuments by order of 31 December 1985.

  • Very peculiar from outside, because before you see the Bell Tower on the left and after you see on the right, is a narrow and very busy. A visit inside is pleasant.
