  Its only baroque 'n' roll, but I like it
by NiceLife

Normally bolted shut, this historical monument in the Cours Saleya was opened up for the "weekend of heritage" in mid-September, allowing sight of the magnificent baroque interior behind the delapidated exterior edging the flower market.

Not quite on the sheer awe-inspiring scale of St Peters in Rome, it nevertheless is a fine example of the wonderful excess in decoration of the period, a time at which religion occupied a rather larger proportion of everyones lives than perhaps today.

Maybe they should paint the outside orange and relaunch it as EasyPray.
