Church of Our Lady of Angels Tips (2)

Church of Our Lady of Angels

The Church of Our Lady of Angels - Eglise de Notre Dame des Anges - was built by French Missionaries in 1865. It is modeled after the Basilica at Lourdes (located in Southern France). The most notable feature of the church is its masonry. In order to create a texture similar to white marble, the finest of limetstone was mixed with whites of eggs. The facade of the church has two columns. The tops are Ionic and the bottoms are Doric, both styles of classical architecture. The other notable feature of the church is an oil painting that was presented by Napolean. The interior central dome has eight circular openings.

The church setting is very picturesque. Trees and flowers frame the church property. Looking out from the front you can see the statue of Joan of Arc and the Bay of Bengal. In front of the church is a statue of Mary with infant Jesus in her arms.
