I remember the first time i saw this church, I was sure there was a tom cruise involved somehow. Surprisingly, no. Despite its modern appearance, Notre-Dame d’Espérance is a Roman Catholic church, and a beautiful one.

The story of Notre-Dame d’Espérance is going back to the year 1928, however, the current building was designed by Bruno Legrand and Jean-Luc Le Roy and realized in 1997. The modern look of the church has a reason behind it. Not only it fits well into the rather modern surroundings of the 11th arrondissement, but feels more welcoming and opened to the people.
