A nice church located in the centre of town. Worth a visit. Care with regards to mass times as they have a service at 10am.

The church dates back to the late 17th century but had to go under significant reconstruction following World War One. The interior is quite beautiful and is dominated by soaring columns, pretty stained glass windows and an impressive alter. It is not a large structure...More

This church is in the centre of Arras. The interior is very nice and well decorated, the outside seems a little neglected and should be valorized more.

Being in the centre of Arras helps a lot. Lovely little church and very peaceful. Beautiful interior as can be expected from most churches around here.

Wandering round, we found this building open. Inside it's stunning.The stained glass windows are beautiful and the peace in the place is real tranquillity. Well worth a hop in to spend some time in thought and contemplation.

I enjoy visiting a church - just takes me within as I realise I am the same energy inside (my opinion). Beautiful windows and art works plus I always light a candle for me, family and healing the planet. Highly recommended.

Astonishing to find a Reubens in this once magnificent church! An old and holy place, with side altars for quiet prayer and contemplation.
