"L'eglise de Jeanne d'Arc" Eglise Jeanne d'Arc - Vieux Marche Tip by arv1

This church is amazing and important for many reasons besides the obvious!

The shape of the building is so intriguing! If it had not been signposted as a church, or if I had not seen the crucifix outside I would have been none the wiser!

Me and my friend Jamilah circled the church just to get the full effect, and boy is it great!! It was quite scary seeing the exact point where Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc) was burned at the stake...very sombre!

Inside was beautiful, the ceiling was absolutely amazing, as was the altar and other ornaments there. It was very peaceful and I felt by taking photos I was disturbing the serenity, but the usher assured me it was ok!

I definately recommend going here, its so beautiful, even if you are not religious!
