It’s not everyday you come across a church like this one!

The facade of the quirky church

Eccentric and colourful, this small church certainly stands out from the rest! The paintings both outside and inside are the works of Priest Victor Paysant (1841-1921), who was appointed Pastor of Ménil-Gondouin in 1873. Inspired by his travels and pilgrimages, he worked until 1921 to decorate and furnish the church that became known as ‘the living and speaking church of Menil-Gondouin’ and which today is a real little gem of a museum.

Beautiful inside and out
