It replaced a chapel dating back to the creation of the hospital for the blind said the "fifteen twenty", by Louis IX in 1259. The name comes from that the number of blind people can be allowed is 300 IE fifteen times twenty! Become parish, too small chapel was replaced by the present Church in 1902 under the direction of the architect Joseph Emile Vaudremer. He introduced what was happening at the time, IE Neo novel for a novelty that becomes fashionable "art Nouveau" and return to the ancient orders for decorations, inspired by "the school of Nancy. Art Nouveau has the particularity to introduce elements of nature that enrich the decoration, while the Romanesque style is rather simple and uncluttered. Built in brick and stone, the Church is however built with modern techniques from the beginning of the 20 th century. The façade is style novel neo, decorated with floral patterns, with a frieze in interlacing, with a steeple topped a headdress. The nave is structured with arcs of semicircular and columns and pilasters topped with original capitals sculptures "Art Nouveau" 3-tier sides downs have a gallery with modern stained glass, and the double arches supported by the columns. These are decorated with friezes of fairly successful novel style polychrome stained glass windows dedicated to saints row, is located under the canopy and spread a little light. The absidial altar dedicated to the Virgin, as well as its dedicated to Saint Joseph for, are decorated in "Art Nouveau" with beautiful wall paintings, of the very prestigious "Nancy school" the choir is very simple style and is separated from the apse has a very b She rose, by a grid, which is amazing! However it is lighted by a canopy that is original and innovative, with molded glass pieces linked by cement. Of each side of the choir can be admired, stunning murals, on the life of Saint Anthony. But the little light is a handicap to observe. The organ in the choir is decorated with painting "Art Nouveau" style before leaving, to admire the way of full color cross of naïve primitive Romanesque style. This building has an indisputable originality and it is a pity that the light is little present unless one is fortunate to come one day of full sun. The Church is accessible by the metro station "Ledru Rollin" line no. 8 by taking the avenue of the same name to the South
It is a church that is not seen from the outside because it is hidden by the mass of shops that are in the street. On the other hand, seen from the inside, it is very large and above all very high. It is home to people who come to collect or gossip outside the cult.
