While in Saint Martinville visiting the Acadian Museum, it was only a short walk to this church. It is the home church of the Cajun people and it is quite beautiful inside. It's still an active Parrish, so it is important to be respectful. Behind...More

Nice church on the outside and grounds. We only looked around the outside and took a look at the statue of Evangeline which is located to the rear of the church.

This is a beautiful old church inside and out. I heard it is one of the oldest in the area and the history of the people that built it is quite fascinating.
