Église Saint-Joachim de Montmorency

Recommended
St Joachim's Church (1779) replaced its 1685 predecessor, razed by the British during the Conquest. It is famous for its interior, by François and Thomas Baillairgé (1815-1825): fine panelling embellished with gilded bas-reliefs in the chancel; large sculpted panels depict Faith and Religion on either side of the sanctuary. The high altarpiece, Saint-Joachim et la Vierge (St Joachim and the Virgin Mary) (1779), is one of the few known paintings by Abbé Antoine Aide-Crequy.
