Sainte-Honorine Church, Graville

Sainte-Honorine Church, Graville

Havre , FR

The nave and transept date from the 11th century, while the choir dates from the 13th century. In the XVIIth century the building underwent modifications following the installation of the congregation of Saint-Maur, it is thus separated into two parts, a first one for the faithful, a second one for the monks. In 1731, the façade was rebuilt. The church has undergone a total of two phases of devastation, one during the wars of religion, one finally with the bombings of 1944.

Sainte-Jeanne-d'Arc Church, Touquet

Sainte-Jeanne-d'Arc Church, Touquet

Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, FR

A first church was built in 1886, then another one in 1911, the first one being too small, and in 1946 it was decided to rebuild everything that had been demolished in 1944. Materials are scarce and work is slow. The rebuilt church was consecrated on June 7, 1954. As in 1911, the church turns out to be too small. An annex was therefore built as an extension of the right transept, between March 1, 1957 and June 1, 1958.
