Saint Jean Baptiste church

Description

Built by architect Eugène Dénarié from 1868 to 1873, this religious edifice replaced the city's old church, which was run down and too small. The architect chose the medieval period as inspiration, obvious through the church's architecture (tower and buttress).
The neo-gothic "troubadour" style of Saint-Jean-Baptiste church breaks with the neoclassical style of most civil service buildings in Albertville (city hall, the subprefecture, etc.).

Edifiée par l'architecte Eugène Denarié de 1868 à 1873, cet édifice remplace l'ancienne église de la ville, située un peu plus en hauteur, devenue vétuste et trop petite. Son style néo-gothique "troubadour" rompt avec le style néoclassique de tous les édifices civils d'Albertville et renoue avec l'élan spirituel du Moyen-Age, un âge où la France se couvrait de cathédrales. On retrouve les contreforts, les arcs brisés...
A observer: son clocher porche, ses tours veillant sur le lieu...
