St Martin-in-the-Fields

Interesting
The Church was built by Gibbs between 1722 and 1726. It has the appearance of a baroque building with an elegant appearance but lacking a little unity. The interior decor is harmonious with a hint of rococo. Its famous not only for its architecture but also, since the 1930s, as a refuge for the homeless. The Church has also given its name to a chamber orchestra known worldwide the Academy of St-Martin-in-the-Fields, which extends a long tradition of classical concerts.
