This church is situated by the seaside promenade. It is quiet old, calm, peaceful and beautiful! A short visit to this church is recommended. The architecture is also quiet nice. During your visit to the seaside promenade, just take a short detour and pay a visit. It's worth a shot!

Beautiful church with lots of devotees on Sunday. It is well maintained and was painted/restored recently. Felt very calm & peaceful. Awesome architecture which gives a glimpse of French culture.

Simply a beautiful facade at any time of the day but in the evening it was simply beautiful. Soft lighting picked up on the stunning colours and in front a little square with Joan d'Arc and people playing Boules. We went for the midnight mass on Christmas Eve which was in Tamil, French and English and it was packed with... More

This lovely place of prayer and tranquillity stood out for its icing sugar pastel coloured interiors and the most beautiful cane and wood seating that I have ever seen.

This church looks very beautiful from outside, when inside it is equally beautiful. The architecture mesmerizes the visitors. we sat on the bench and spent a much time admiring the architecture. The location is too very beautiful. The church looks to the rocky beach. One can spend a good time sitting in the garden of the church!!

Rue Dumas has been freshly painted in pastel shades and looks inviting in the bright sunshine. We went in and admired the stained glass windows and paintings and sat awhile on the wooden bench with heads bowed in prayer. A lone crow fluttered in, but its caws left the parishioners quite unperturbed

This is a beautiful church well maintained. Very close to White Town and easily walk-able from the promenade. The architecture looked more contemporary then French. Worth a visit if you are church goer or like visiting churches.
