We came to see the stained glass windows by Marc Chagall and they were wonderful. The audio guide had very good information on it.

The church interior is fairly plain. The Marc Chagall stained glass windows are definitely the drawing point. Each of the windows was a different color. Photos are not allowed.

It's worth to take the audio guide included in the entrance fee to listen to the description of the church, especially the stained glass of Chagall.

we visited several churches all within walking distance of one another , Inquire about the operational hours as they do fluctuate from season to season . This can all be done in less than 6 hours walking and sight seeing

Another european church. The original architecture is from the alps but insides is a regular one. If you do not go or get inside it is ok. And if you do, it is ok too.
