Presentation

125 years in the making!

This majestic collegiate church is the largest classical-style church in the Marne. Located on Place d'Armes, its construction began in 1629 and was completed in... 1754!

Both imposing and harmonious, the church also houses a number of treasures, including a painting by Brother Luc François, a canopied altar and the Grand Organ, which was originally from Trois-Fontaines Abbey.
