Chapelle Notre Dame des Anges

Chapelle Notre Dame des Anges

Built in 1863 by the Marist Fathers, 
this Gothic Revival architecture is largely hidden from the street view.  
One gets a glimpse here of a few of the nearly forty storied windows 
created by Joseph Vigne and dedicated to the Virgin Mary.  

bon dimanche

Excellent capture. I really do get the feeling of those walls going up, and up, and up!

Bon dimanche!

What a gorgeous church! I love the stained windows. So pretty! It would be such a pleasure to sit in this church and just stare at the beauty of it. :)

The angle of the photo makes these windows really soar! I hope you'll play along with my Dreaming of France meme on Monday. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

Hoping that all had a memorable Sunday today. Safe travels to you, anni.

This church is not one to catch your attention from the street as it appears just as an unbroken wall with a door and a modern sign. You never know what treasures await unless you push that door open and enter. We almost skipped this one, but I am glad that we did not.
