Saint-Vincent-de-Paul

Église Saint-Vincent-de-Paul

Marseille has a lot of churches and places of worship for every religion. Since this city has such a mix of nationalities and races, the cultural and religious life is very rich and diverse. Here’s one that I really liked – Saint Vincent de Paul. This Neo-Gothic church is also known as Les Réformés and was built during the 19th century, on the remains of a medieval church, also named Les Réformés. The most beautiful part of Saint Vincent de Paul is the bronze doors with their intricate allegorical bas-reliefs of animals signifying all the virtues and vices you can think of. This is also the place where the santon-makers’ mass of the city’s historic Santos Fair takes place.
