Church of Notre Dame de Royan

Interesting
This church in reinforced concrete covered in a layer of resin was built in 1958 by Guillaume Gillet and Hébrard. Note how the chevet seems to bow as you look up - an effect accentuated by the 65m-high bell-tower. On the left is a pyramid-shaped baptistery, detached from the nave. There is also a copper statue of Joan of Arc and a wooden statue of Christ from the 14C. The enormous hammered tin organ was made by Robert Boisseau from Poitiers.
