Parish church Saint-François-Xavier church in Paris

Raised in 1861 by Adrien Lusson, completed in 1874 by Joseph Uchard, the church is amazing, with its vivid colour and its modernity!

The huge Neo-Byzantine dome was painted by Charles Lameire: this one also decorated the basilica of Fourvières in Lyon, the church of la Madeleine or the city hall in Paris!
