Eglise Saint-Louis

Classified as “Historic Monument” since 1982, the Church of St. Louis is a model of neoclassical architecture. Completed in 1829, the church is located in the center of La Roche-sur-Yon, a city created by Napoleon the 1st. It's liturgical furniture and its vault painted in “trompe-l'oeuil” show the evolution of art from the nineteenth to the twentieth centuries. It's architecture seems inspired by the the Church of St. Philippe du Roule in Paris. The church was recently restored in 2004 respecting the original construction techniques, such as the conservation of slate roof fixed with copper nails, and copper downspouts. This work gives a new luster to the Church of St. Louis and helped to highlight the dedication located on the front of the church.
