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.

    Pros

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