Église de la Conception (Church of the Conception)
Église de la Conception (Church of the Conception) Review
From Place St. Nicolas head south on boulevard Général de Gaulle, which becomes rue Napoléon, for two blocks to the 16th-century Église de la Conception, occupying a cobble-stoned square as originally built. Step inside the baroque portal to admire the church's ornate 18th-century interior, requiring a bright day to see much detail as interior lighting is quite dim. The walls are covered with wood carvings, gold, marble, and velvet fabric; the ceiling is painted with vibrant frescoes. Check out the altar's interpretation of the Assumption of Murillo, whose original version sits in Madrid's El Prado Museum.
