Cathédrale Saint Louis, La Rochelle

In the Cathédrale Saint Louis in La Rochelle are some intricate examples of painted glass, which make an interesting contrast with the rich jewel colours of the stained glass more usually associated with places of worship. We found the more subtle hues and limited colour palette more pleasing to the eye.
 As befits a coastal location, emblems of the sea are evident.
At the time we visited, work was being done on some of the larger windows so we look forward to a return visit to see the results of the work.

The cathedral also contains more 'conventional'stained glass and to see more information and images of the other windows, please see here.
