Indispensable to have the maximum information on this place and explanations on the different stained glass Windows as well as the story of Jeanne.
L'architecture extérieure de l'édifice est surprenante, sans doute clivante et perturbe la perspective de la place. Mais c'est l'intérieur qui nous a semblé apaisant, sobre et vraiment réussi. more »The exterior architecture of the building is surprising, without a doubt clicking and disturbing the perspective of the square. But it was the Interior that seemed soothing, sober and really successful.
An interesting modern take on a religious building, based loosely on a Viking Longship (Vikings being the 'original' Normans). The light from the stained glass windows is very calming. Even though it lacks the grandeur and scale of the nearby gothic Cathedral, this is a pleasant place to sit and reflect, in the heart of a bustling square. It is also at the location of Joan of Arc's burning at the stake, a significant event in the Hundred Year's War between England and France.
This was an impromptu stop on our way to the beaches of Normandy. We are glad we stopped. Joan of Arc was quite the lady! If you like history, we recommend the visit.
