“Sunday service amongst the saints”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Attended Sunday mass at this the city's cathedral and although my limited French meant I understood little of the service content, I still felt spiritually uplifted and grateful for the warm welcome and inclusiveness of this church. Architecturally, it is an extraordinary combination with a Roman facade at one end, later rebuild elsewhere and an amazing dome in a Muslim style.

“The front entrance is stunning and the domes from the inside have to be seen to be believed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

The actual address of this splendid glistening white building is 18 rue Fenelon, 16000 Angouleme in the Charente, France. It is situated near to the Rempart du Midi. Angouleme is a stunning city raised on a plateau with panoramic scenes. The church, although simple inside, has an impressive presence. The sculptures on the façade and the wrought-iron work on the doors are well-worth the visit.
