Worth a visit. Beautiful stain glass windows. Just takes a few minutes to see this very modern church amidst the flower and food markets.

This catholic church built in 1979 has beautiful stained glass windows and an usual design built to commemorate the life of Joan of Arc who is highly celebrated in Rouen. They have beautiful flower markets just nearby.

unsightly outside but beautiful stained glass & light inside. The site of Joan of Arc's death is a sweet little park outside of this church.

This church is very unusual. The outside of it looks like a dragon...didn't make sense to me but the inside is gorgeous. No matter where you sit inside, you are facing the beautiful stained glass windows. In the back of the church are two fish-shaped...More

Modern church but one of the most beautiful ones of this era. The wood and glass in stain windows are breathtaking.

It is a nontypical church. It has three sides one being made of stained glass. The inside is too modern for me. The outside shape is a metaphor if the flame that immolated Jane of Arc. The exact position of the woodshed is localized with...More

Beautiful stained glass best viewed from inside the church. That being said, I consider it an eyesore that does not fit with the rest of the square in which it resides. The church is worth visiting just to view the stained glass. If you found...More

I love juxtapositions of the new and the old. France seems to do this well, although sometimes kicking and screaming, like with the Pompidou Center. The building contrasts with the town architecture, and inside it looks more like a Unitarian church in the United States...More

At the first sight the church clashes with the square and the city. It is too modern and too invasive. Inside there are nice stained glass windows.
