Eglise Saint-Michel à Porchefontaine


This is Saint-Michael's church in Porchefontaine neighbourhood. Built in meulière stone, it was inaugurated on St-Michael's day, 1908 as a chapel. The rest of the building was added in 1937.

L'église Saint-Michel fut d'abord juste la chapelle en meulière, inaugurée le jour de la Saint-Michel en 1908. Puis on y ajouta la nef centrale en 1937.

Beautiful structure.

Il faut un début à tout, c’est la première que je vois dans ce matériau. Je connais une école, des gares, des pavillons of course.... Une ravissante et modeste chapelle pour le terrible archange terrasseur de dragon (j’étais au Mont, celui qui est en Normandie, tu sais, le WE dernier).

Such amazing stonework. The airy, light filled interior is beautiful.

I very much like the beams and how they contrast with the white walls. It looks bright and cheerful as if it were a place to sing and give praise.

Ditto to much of the above. Charming both inside and out. Still missing your "cool" button.
