One of the biggest religious sites in the west
The original Basilica of St. Martin was destroyed during the French Revolution, after going through many fires. It had the Charlemagne Tower and Clock Tower. In the year 1885 the construction of the new one began in a neo-Byzantine style. This is smaller than the previous one, which was one of the biggest religious sites in the West. At the top of one of the domes stands a statue of Saint Martin. It was finished in the year 1924.
