Church of Notre Dame de Royan Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
This church in reinforced concrete covered in a layer of resin was built in 1958 by Guillaume Gillet and Hébrard. Note how the chevet seems to bow as you look up - an effect accentuated by the 65m-high bell-tower. On the left is a pyramid-shaped baptistery, detached from the nave. There is also a copper statue of Joan of Arc and a wooden statue of Christ from the 14C. The enormous hammered tin organ was made by Robert Boisseau from Poitiers.

    L'intérieur est très beau ! Magnifique vitrail central. L'utilisation de béton à l'intérieur est surprenant. A voir

    Pros

    Eglise surprenante et ambitieuse, même si le béton reste une matière brute et froide. Belle élévation intérieure.
