Saint François Church, Montpellier

Saint François Church, Montpellier

Saint François Church was built in the 1990s. The design of the building is very different from the classical-looking churches. It is very modern and unusual, having the shape of a sail-ship, with a sail as a glass covered wall. Strangely, the interior is very light and simple. Even if the architecture of the church is extremely modern and practical, every detail of the building carries theological messages and symbols. Still, it possesses traditional church features such as stained glass inner windows.
