This is a "standard" French church - nothing unique. Similar baroque churches can be found all over. As we stayed nearby I was attending some of the ceremonies. It is always interesting to follow the local people in their every-day-doings.

We saw only the outside if this great church, as there was a funeral when we were at the spot. So, we could only take a look/sneak, but the church is remarkable - neoclassical (?) from the outside. The surroundings are not great.

We drove by the church a few times last week and had no idea it was a church. It reminded me more of an old Roman palace then a church. That being said, the columns in the front gives it all its charm!
