Built from 1883, the Saint-Joseph church was designed by Holy-Marie-Louis-Jean PERRIN, say Sainte-Marie PERRIN, raises and successor of Pierre-Marie BOSSAN, the architect of Notre-Dame de Fourvière in LYON.

This building replaced another church, dating from XIV century at least, located on the Clémenceau place and demolished because it was decayed.

In frontage, the gate, without porch, is surmounted by a sculpture due to DUFRENE (of Lyon), representing the " Good Pasteur" , and a powerful flanked bell-tower of slate louvers.

Inside, it is noticed that the side aisles are of the same height than the principal nave. At the end of collateral, one finds two groups carved: on the left, holy Joseph, owner of the church, surrounded by Pierre saint and Paul saint; on the right, the Virgin, giving the rosary to Dominique saint and holy Catherine of Sienne.

In the chorus, the furnace bridge is surmounted by a baldachin, as in Fourvière. The most remarkable remainder the decoration - interior and external - of a great eclecticism, which borrows from times and different civilizations: the palmettes of the acroteria, for example, return to the oldest civilizations of our world; the bulls of the gate, in addition to the usual religious code, are ancestral representations of the force and power; the rosettes, ornamentation already in the Middle Ages of the religious buildings, recall the worship marial and the rosary in honor to the XIX century. In the spirit of Sainte-Marie PERRIN, these elements were to symbolize the spiritual search of the man, and in accordance with his convictions, the permanence of the faith and the Christian Church.
