  • Come see this church to great lines, but especially to architecture mistreated by time and the under ground no doubt. It looks around, it's twisted, there are reinforcements, but that it is authentic. And then there is a striking contrast between the front of the Church, the nave, bathed in a lot of light, and the other half diving in darkness. No more stained glass of origin clearly, but that the stone is beautiful here. Lavish statuary in front and around the porch to a very unusual height.

  • The Caen call this church "leaning". It is true, as the Tower of Pisa in Tuscany, it leans. Simply place is not far in the street to be impressed and maybe worried, to see this monument as unbalanced and sinking on one side. However, and oddly enough it still holds up. Certainly the bombing of World War 2, who destroyed the city at 90% are not foreign. We called this place the island of St. John, because he was surrounded by small channels. Following the destruction of the city, channels have been recipients of the landslides, and were unfortunately filled thereby. It is a beautiful gothic church, where even the "stone of Caen" seems to sing by its different shades, while the stained glass windows are from all sides. And, if you have the chance that the organist is working his scores that day, so thanks to this stranger, you will be transported to a moment of grace, prayer, welfare... or peace simply. Wrapped in armor of the stone lace, the nave is a marvel, because each window is a gentle and elegant grace that soothes and invigorates.

  • Very pretty leaning Church. Church St. John of Caen is the parish church of the Saint John district in Caen. This monument is being classified historical monuments as even though there is no indication.
