IT IS SIMPLY AMAZING WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH CONCRETE AND SOME IMAGINATION. I was spellbound by this place - it's architecture was magnificent but, more than that, kit felt like a place that had been prayed in.

The outside of St. Joseph's is rather mundane consisting of concrete geometric shapes and lacking the ornate ornamentation often associated with larger churches/cathedrals. The church is harmonious with the post-war architectural climate of the city. Step inside and you will be astounded by the beauty....More

As I approached this church which is the main landmark in Le Havre I had decided it was a hideously unattractive building but the outside does nothing to prepare you for what is inside. It really is a strikingly beautiful building and one of the...More
