  • This church, dedicated to Saint Christopher (patron of travellers in connection with the former automobile factories of the district), was built in 1926-1930 by the architect Charles-Henri Besnard. He used the modern and economical materials of his time, especially molded concrete. The architecture is slender; It is inspired by Gothic art. The decoration is of great richness: paintings on the walls, stained glass, sculptures on concrete and glass. This is not the style I prefer, but the whole is quite amazing and impressive by its quality. Really a little known Church to discover in Paris that still lacks wonders!

  • Somptuous church in cement by Besnard inspired directly by Viollet-le-Duc. A place for tourists too since Saint Christophe is patron of travelers.
  • A very nice team, from Monsieur the Curé to the generous fathers, my favorite, Father Thierry, the sacristan always smiling, often a way to end up around a festive table open to all. What a pity that such a beautiful classified Church, so sad so gray concealing such a beautiful heritage cannot obtain funds so that it is renovated, it deserves so much!!!
