About

This church is both discrete and quirky, with its passage that connects the two shopping streets of rue du Lieutenant Colonel Pélissier and rue de la Pomme.

The former chapel of the Penitents Bleus, this church with its curving lines was built in the XVII Century, under Louis XIII, the first King of France to be a member of this confraternity.

Whilst its exterior remains discrete – the main doors are a little austere and the façade is quite unremarkable – the Baroque interior is a surprise. You can admire, most notably, the pulpit with its angel in flight, the bas-reliefs depicting the virtues, angel musicians and trophies and the two organs. The wooden celling brings a touch of warmth to this haven of peace and piety in the city.

But the most surprising feature is the semi-circular passage that houses numerous viewing windows and allows visitors to go from one road to the next without ever crossing the church.
