One of the oldest churches in the south. Beautiful interior, as well as, exterior grounds. The church square is surrounded by historic charming buildings in a town once called "Petit Paris".

The church is gorgeous filled with stained glass windows and statues. The grotto was very impressive and the grounds were well kept. The statue of Evangeline is in the grounds of the church

It was lovely inside and out, a beautiful historic building on the Bayou Teche. The grounds are well-maintained, and its proximity to the Evangeline Oak and the Acadian Memorial make it a must-see.

We wanted to visit the acadian memorial, but they had decided to close it for father's day. Too bad for us. We enjoyed this nice church in the heart of St Martinville though, and wandered along Bayou Teche

What a wonderful surprise! The church's interior was stunning and the grounds were beautiful. Statues throughout the church, most of them lifesize.
