Nice church on the outside and grounds. We only looked around the outside and took a look at the statue of Evangeline which is located to the rear of the church.

Just an average looking church with a steeple from the outside but cross the threshold and it is breath taking. Highly recommend a visit here for anyone who appreciates beautiful churches/buildings. Special appreciation for the Stations of the Cross. Most beautiful ones I have ever seen.

This church building is absolutely stunning. While it still serves as the focal point of this Cajun town, the Catholic church originally ran in the town (as they did in France). It's fascinating to visit a place in the United States where this was the case. A visit here takes you out of exhibits about the Cajun people and culture and how they came to form the communities they did in southern Louisiana, and puts you right in the middle of an epicenter. The building is stunning, inside and out, and a walk through it and around town will truly leave you feeling like you're in a different world.

This is a beautiful old church inside and out. I heard it is one of the oldest in the area and the history of the people that built it is quite fascinating.
