  • One of the first churches built with a reinforced concrete structure. She is inspired by the Byzantine churches. There is no interior pillars, concrete arches that support all enroll in a cube. The ground surface is square and the Church is as high as it is wide. Very good acoustics for concerts. Here is the link to the history page of the Church on the site of the parish:

  • The architects have designed this church referring to byzantine architecture. 4 large reinforced concrete arches delimit a single nave while giving the impression of a Greek cross. They are at their crossroads an octagonal dome which berries provide an overhead lighting. The Bell Tower, hexagonal, measuring 50 m high. The walls of the Church of St. Louis are in meulieres, sometimes traversed by an apparatus of red brick. The interior decoration is due to the workshops of sacred arts formed in 1919 under the impulse of the painters Maurice Denis, Georges Desvallières, Henri Marret and the sculptor Bourdelle. There including the Marret frescoes (in particular, the way of the cross) and Denis (the Beatitudes and the Glorification of St. Louis that decorates the bottom of the apse behind the altar), as well as the statue of St. Louis, work of Carlo Sarrabezolles. Maurice Dhomme ceramics and the ironwork of Raymond Subes also contribute to the beauty of the Church of Saint Louis. A superb history, visit not to be missed!

  • Must enter to admire the building, even if it does not adhere to Catholicism. The discovery and the look are really worth the shot
