Wow so beautiful !! Kinneved Church offers many attractions. The interior is colorful, and the pulpit's sound ceiling has strong colors that give the church a special character. The church's cows with their softly rounded shapes have paintings on the ceiling, among other things. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to see this very beautiful little church which from the outside looks quite large, but once inside the church one is surprised that it is so small, but very, very beautiful!

The Church of St Eustace was built between 1532-1632. St Eustace"s is considered a masterpiece of late Gothic architecture. The church’s reputation was strong enough of the time for it to be chosen as the location for a young Louis XIV to receive communion. Mozart also chose the sanctuary as the location for his mother’s funeral. Among those baptised here as children were Richelieu, Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson, future Madame de Pompadour and Molière, who was also married here in the 17th century. The last rites for Anne of Austria, Turenne and Mirabeau were pronounced within its walls. Marie de Gournay is buried there.

The origins of Saint Eustache date back to 13th century. The church became a parish church in 1223, thanks to a man named Jean Alais who achieved this by taxing the baskets of fish sold nearby, as granted by King Philip Augustus. To thank such divine generosity, Alais constructed a chapel dedicated to Sainte-Agnès, a Roman martyr.
