A 1979 masterpiece of modern minimalist architecture, this dramatic church is meant to symbolize the search for 'absolute geometrical purity.'

I missed this church the first time I passed on this square. The second time a friend showed it to me, and the architecture is impressive.

A very beautiful modern memorial to Joan of Arc, not to be missed as it is a great contrast to most of the Cathedrals you visit in France and though they are beautiful also it is nice to see a modern interpretation

Built in the late 1970s. A curved structure which represents the flames that consumed Joan of Arc and an overturned longboat. Beautiful stained glass windows came from a 16c church nearby of which can be seen the ruins. Only small but worth a visit.

This church has fabulous stained glass windows on two sides of the Church. It is worth to stop and view the windows from the inside. You will be truly impressed.

Found in the Place du Vieux Marche, the church of Joan of Arc was closed the day we visited.However, we spotted her statue as well as the place where she was burnt on 30th May 1431.

This church is really modern compared to the rest of the town. The strange shapes (inside and outside) make it stand out in the middle of the square. Inside you can see all the amazing glass work. It is not ostentacious, its just right.

It's a lovely church with beautiful stained glass and a very modern interior. Unfortunately for anyone in a wheelchair, there isn't a ramp to get down to the pews. The church is next to the site marking the area that is believed to be where...More

A one of a kind church with beautiful stained glasses and architecture. Do take a seat inside and admire the details while contemplating on the achievement of Saint Joan of Arc.
