  • This church was built in honor of the workers who built the buildings for the Paris World Exhibitions. It is made of iron, the facade is clad in stone. Because of these materials, it looks very different from other churches. It is a pity that in the sculptures can be note to the artist is recognizable.

  • Hidden in the depths of the 14th arrondissement of Paris, the Notre Dame du Travail church is a monument of stone and steel remarkable for its metal frame and exposed truss frame.

  • Interesting history: When construction for the Eiffel tower began in 1887, workers from nearby towns migrated to Paris, mostly settling in Montparnasse. A thoughtful move to provide these workers a place of worship, Paroisse Notre-Dame-du- Travail, was built from recycled material from the Palace of Industry built for the 1855 World's Fair. Quite difficult to find because it is tucked behind the place de Catalogne. And, if one is looking for a "quirky" structure (as blogs would describe it), it could be missed because it has quite an ordinary exterior. However, inside is an extraordinarily unadorned interior composed of a nave and four aisles. The exposed, exceptionally light iron frame not only create an industrial aesthetic but becomes a fitting tribute to the workers' dedication to their craft.
  • Amazing detail with a peacefull ambience.
