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.

I missed this church the first time I passed on this square. The second time a friend showed it to me, and the architecture is impressive.

A very beautiful modern memorial to Joan of Arc, not to be missed as it is a great contrast to most of the Cathedrals you visit in France and though they are beautiful also it is nice to see a modern interpretation

Built in the late 1970s. A curved structure which represents the flames that consumed Joan of Arc and an overturned longboat. Beautiful stained glass windows came from a 16c church nearby of which can be seen the ruins. Only small but worth a visit.

Even if you are not religious this gem is well worth a visit. Dramatic asymmetric interior with splendid stained glass windows. The outside mimics the flames....

This church has fabulous stained glass windows on two sides of the Church. It is worth to stop and view the windows from the inside. You will be truly impressed.

Found in the Place du Vieux Marche, the church of Joan of Arc was closed the day we visited.However, we spotted her statue as well as the place where she was burnt on 30th May 1431.
