Erected on the remains of a former Benedictine abbey for aristocratic city women, this 13th-century Gothic church features an eye-catching blue spire rising proudly over the city's skyline. In addition to Chagall's windows in the choir stalls and the southern transept, which depict various biblical stories, the church also boasts a 9 m (30 ft) tall stained glass by Swiss painter Augusto Giacometti.

  • A small fee to see gorgeous Chagall & Giacometti windows. Very beautiful interior. Easy to visit and worth the time.

  • Beautiful church but 5 frank for visit is too much in my opinion. The tour includes visiting a crypt but it's highly renovated so if you're looking for something kept in historical tone you won't get it here. Anyway, it was nice visit
  • A magnificent church, well managed including entry, crypt and shop. The brochure is excellent and an essential guide. The stained glass by Chagall and Giacometti is wonderful. I would suggest organ music at regular intervals to complete the experience.
