Église Saint-François-Xavier de Batiscan

Batiscan ( Mauricie )

Built in 1866 by the architect Zéphirin Perreault de Deschambeault, this Church is one of the oldest plaster churches still in existence in Québec. The neo-Gothic main altar, side altars and pulpit and sounding board are remarkable for their rich, exuberant ornamentation. Because of its relatively modest size and exceptional decoration, the church resembles the small chapel of a castle and is worth a look for this fact alone. A guide recounts its history and more.
