  • You kind of think restoration is over in Caen and then you find this wonderful church. Take a look at some of the information panels outside and marvel at the resources still being deployed.  more »
  • Unknown, Church St. John is best known for his side "looks" like the Tower of Pisa... It is true that this surprise. It's a nice inside, but it's especially outside that will grab the attention: each of the berries with a stained glass window is distinguished from others, with long grace and variety in stone. Both sides of the aisle can't enough the visitors, which will usefully take time to detect variations in the stone, indicating the subtlety of the architect who has been able to avoid monotony. A fine example of flamboyant art. It is also and of course a place of prayer.

  • Sort of Tower of Pisa of Caen, this church is particularly true for the façade looked. It is not necessary to enter; a picture of the exterior will suffice.
