    Even if I'm not fan of architecture in reinforced concrete of Perret, I found this even extraordinary. Both in its original form by the lighting produced by stained glass windows that made me think of those of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. This building is worth the trip

    Beautiful church. This church is one of kind masterpiece. The stained glass work is pure craftsmanship. I wish I could have attended a mass here and may try to do so on a return trip to France. You can sit in awe and pray for a long time in a peaceful beautiful church like this. Very modern Stations of the Cross, unique confessionals, and simple alter. Great displays and explanations of meanings in the back of the church. Be sure to check out the spiral staircase climbing up the central tower. I’d say the best attraction in Le Havre!

    Best architecture and view of a church so far.

    From the outside, the church looks like it could be some kind of communist monolith - all grey and concrete. But when you go inside, the colours just flood the whole interior. The stained glass windows in the tower let the light fall everywhere in such beautiful vibrancy. The layout of the church is unique and that adds to the beauty of it all. It's easy to spend a while just sitting and looking at it all. It's free to get in and is a highlight of a trip to Le Havre. Make sure you don't miss it!
