  • ARCABAS Grenoble painter has invested the place several decades ago. It's always a delight to enter this church without character outside to discover inside a jewel of contemporary sacred art. ARCABAS which we find works in many buildings nearby (go to the Tower of pine: remarkable) imagined recreated a biblical universe where the scenes are reproduced on different reading levels throughout the building, including sculptures. We went there at the time of a concert of the BERLIOZ Festival, where the music of BACH added to the beauty of the place and the serenity of the Chartreuse mountains.
