The wonderful interior of the majestic Church of La Rochelle it is as beautiful inside as out and we spent a lovely time in it exploring and admiring!
Replacing a XIIth Century Romanesque Church a gothic versions was pulled down in 1568 during the religious conflicts all that remains is it’s bell-tower. Rebuilt for a third time in XVIIth Century the church was burnt down in 1705 save the facade! The present Church since consecrated in 1718 has long been the Sailors’ Parish Church.
