  • This original church of the parish St. Francis of Sales looks like a village church, the time of Monceau. It is located Bremontier Street in the 17th arrondissement. Its façade is of a neo novel rather stripped topped with a lovely steeple topped with a peaked roof, to the old! It dates from 1873 and at the time, it was enough for the small population of the suburb of the Plaine Monceau. The nave is unique with the ambulatories, supported by pillars and semicircular arches. However the architect, to lighten the structure, to made an arch in masonry, at crossroads d ' style neo Gothic ogive. The major interest of this building is in the absidiales two chapels dedicated to the Virgin and the sacred heart. They are placed in large niches to ceiling and side painted in Gothic style. They have a beautiful altarpiece that frames the Central statue. A somital occulus barely illuminates these chapels which, unfortunately, are quite dark. Very beautiful paintings are in the expressive style of the Gothic and chronicle the lives of the two saints. You can also admire the beautiful paintings of the ambulatory, including a large canvas of "The adoration of the Angels" of the Flemish School of the 16th century. The altar is framed by two chapels with statues, style "Popular novel", St. Francis and Saint Jeanne de Chantal. The apse has the particularity to be decorated with stained-glass windows of medallions, with the Apostles and the attributes of the Church, people of God, Tradition and Scripture. . The high altar is particularly successful with a gallery of the Apostles in bedrock. Finally, I liked the many stained glass windows relating the life of St Francis, in a somewhat naïve style of the novel. Organs are supported by a large balcony in woodwork, which overlooks the entrance in the nave. This church is a bit dark, and it is best to visit a day of full sun. It is open daily from 9: 00 to 19: 00

  • Built in 1873, it is back to back with the new St. Francis de Sales Church, which overlooks the street amp. Inside, you can admire the stained glass windows, the way of the cross, the paintings, the Gallery organ, statues, two chapels, the chorus with its master altar... A nice visit. Come by metro, station "Wagram".
