The church was one of Van Gogh’s famous paintings during his stay at Auvers sur-Oise. Small church but beautiful and still well maintained. The church can be reach as soon as we arrive at the city.

As always, so lovely, so full of history & always touches my soul when I enter & someone is playing the organ. I can see why Van Gogh painted this structure.

This church is best known because of the Van Gogh painting. We passed it several times before venturing inside. It's well worth the visit. It's a little Gothic gem that goes back to the 11th century.

This massive church, nicely situated up a hill from village center, is open to the public. I was surprised how massive and gray it was in comparison to Van Gogh's brilliantly colored painting of it. The only relief from the drab grayness inside was some beautiful stain glass windows. It is a sad tale that the priest of this church after Van Gogh committed suicide, would not allow Van Gogh's funeral to be at the church and refused to lend a hearse.

This church is not as outstanding as other churches in France, but it is worth visiting as part of the visit to Auvers-sur-Oise. Outside, one can see a sign (part of the tourist information) that shows van Gogh's painting of the church. It's amazing to see how a very plain-looking church is transformed by the artist.
