  • Modern architecture, but we must enter this church to appreciate the old stained glass windows of the Church St Vincent saved from the bombardments of the last war.

  • It is true that in the center of Rouen, is expected not to a modern church, yet this church is perfectly integrated and worth visiting. Its cathedral are quite beautiful... and still more a day where the sun comes to play with colors

  • Fantastic stained glass windows. Amazing modern church. Quaint narrow cobbled streets
  • I do not see how the masons and artisan builders of the old eras were able to make such beautiful and ornate structures with limited technology. This is a great example of Gothic architecture of the era dedicated to one of France's great hero's. Take a gander around the building and inside to see the beauty of a time long ago!
  • Inside, really beautiful modern wood made ceilling shaped like a boat. It's a small church, there is a lot to see around it. The square where is placed is full of pubs and restaurants and the fish shape roof covers a market of fresh products.
  • The church rooftop is designed to represent the flames that consumed Joan of Arc. This is a modern church having been rebuilt with it's original stained glass windows. There is an adjoining garden with a monument that marks the spot where Joan of Arc was burned.
  • Interesting architecture that reminds me of an inverted hat. The whole square has been carefully laid out and is well worth visiting, especially given its history and market.
