Our Lady of Richelieu
The church of Our Lady of Richelieu designed by Jacques Lemercier viewed across the half-renovated town market square. Lemercier's building follows the church of the Jesuits in Rome , Il Jesu, by Vignola of 1584. Other famous Lemercier buidings in Paris are the Chapel of the Sorbonne, the church of Val-de-Grâce and the Pavilion de l'Horloge in the Louvre.
