St Joan's Church of Caen
Much damaged during the war, this fine late Gothic building was begun in the 14 C and adapted in the 16 C. Its clock tower door was inspired by the tower of St Peter's church. In the vast nave, note the lantern tower, at the crossing of the transept where the cylindrical cavity shows some well worked walls. In the chevet, a statue of Joan of Arc repatriated from Oran.
