Description

This church (1956-1958), a roughcast building isolated on a hillock, has an exceptional number of stained glass windows using the applied technique of famous French glass artist Gabriel Loire from Chartres. They are very colourful even when not lit and the round windows (on the southern façade) show scenes from the life of Christ. The different stations on the Way of the Cross were sculpted and painted in blocks of wood.
