SightsEdit

  • The church of Saint Helier contains a nationally remarkable collection of 20th century stained glass windows by François Décorchemont (1880-1971), who independently invented a unique way of creating vivid colours in the mediaeval style. The style is more accessible than either the often much more abstract glass of the 20th century, or most 19th century church glass with its invariably more formal subject matter and less vibrant colours. The windows depict, among others, Saints Helier, Joan of Arc, Anselm of Canterbury, Francis of Assisi and Genevieve.
