The church of Saint Joan of Arc was completed in 1979 in the center of the ancient market square known as the Place du Sainte Jeanne D’Arc PDF-Marché. The modern church Sainte-Jeanne d’Arc and the adjacent market halls were designed by the architect Louis Arretche.
The sweeping curves of the structure are meant to evoke both the flames that consumed Joan of Arc and an overturned longship. The stained glass windows come from the 16th century Church of Saint Vincent, whose ruins are located a few metres away. The old church was almost completely destroyed in 1944 during World War II, but the windows had been removed and stored in a safe location during the war. They were then incorporated into the Church of Saint Joan of Arc.
