  • From the outside it looks like a Greek temple but it is a church. Beautiful outside and inside, not to be missed

  • It is not necessarily at this church that we think to visit first but for all that, despite the appearance of the exterior quite successful but a little "cold", this place is to be seen during a visit to the neighborhood. A brief but sufficient notice is available to visitors at the entrance. The interior is very well designed and not too loaded as is sometimes the case in other churches including statues and a remarkable pulpit. In short, a relaxing moment to pass for believers or not with, for amateurs, a small stop at the site dedicated to Johnny Halliday rather visited seems it because it is the 49th guest book! On the way out to take a look at the very successful Pushkin café.
