Eglise St-Joseph Reviews

Even though the church looks quite rigid and square, it is worth visiting the very soviet architecturally looking eglise St-Joseph. The light is surprising! more »
Amazing church building not like any other type of modern type church I have seen so far. Very strong geometric concrete structure on the inside. You will find texts and images of its architect inside. The seats remind me of 1960's movie theatre seats, not the typical wood seats. As a church it comes with free entrance (donations welcome). Worth a visit as a part of the UNESCO world heritage site of the "concrete city" that it stands in.
It's all about straight lines and different angles, and off course the coloured glass. To me it does not have that feeling you get when you enter into a church. It was more like a library with no books. You need to get close to the altar and look up and marvel at the angles and the different colours produced by the glass. I was lucky that the sun was shining outside, which made the glass light up inside.
