Église du Sacré-Coeur de Lille

4 reviews of Église du Sacré-Coeur de Lille

The chapel boasts beautiful stained glass windows

The Sacred Heart Church of Lille was built by the French architect Jules Batigny between the years 1875 and 1898. The bell tower was completed some time later, in the middle of the following century, and when you walk down the street of Solferino you see it from quite a distance. The chapel boasts beautiful stained glass windows, one of which is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, and others depict scenes from the Bible. The strange thing is that the church, instead of having it´s facade facing directly onto the main street, is built on the corner of the street. Due to this, you cannot walk around and see the back part like most of the old churches in this era.
