ST. LAWRENCE CHURCH

Petit Futé's opinion on ST. LAWRENCE CHURCH

Vintage plate 2020

Located in the immediate vicinity of the Providence House, Saint-Laurent Church was founded in 1221 by Saint-Dominique, who came past the last year of his life at Puy. Previously served by the monks of the order of the preachers, one can observe in his choir the glove of the famous Bertrand Du Guesclin, hero of the Hundred Years War. This building, enlarged in the xivcentury century, is one of the few witnesses of the Gothic era in the Velay. The Huguenots destroyed his bell tower in 1562. Falling in ruins, she remained closed to the public between 1971 and 1988. The architecture of this building is truly superb. You can admire, inside, beautiful windows of the nineteenth century skillfully restored and others of the twentieth century recently created by the master verrier Makarha, beautiful woodworks (chairs, stalkeys…) and a paving over the whole of the church of a most original symbolism.

J'ai bien apprécié la visite de cette église, les vitraux sont remarquables et en s'arrêtant devant le gisant de Bertrand du Guesclin on essaie de se rappeler nos cours d'histoire de France.

bel édifice architectural ,dommage que ce monument soit perpetuellement en travaux surtout la façade masquée par d'horribles filets verts sur les échaffaudages
