Although there remains a small area for worship, with an altar and a chancel, this building is also used for various other public display purposes, including art exhibitions. The interior lacks character, but isn't unpleasant. The exterior is undistinguished.

Great location on the banks of the Loire. A very bare interior which despite the church's troubles still manages to convey a science of quiet spirituality.

This grand old church is worth a moment to visit. We actually attended a concert, and the majesty of the architecture imbued the music with a special atmosphere. There was standing room only, and the concert was free.

This restored church now houses art works and sometimes choral concerts. Some good stained glass.Perhaps a few seats would be useful so that we could read all the historical notes and banners.
