Sight 1: Église Saint-Jacques

Show sight on map

The Saint-Jacques church is a parish Catholic church in Gothic style located in Compiègne, in Oise, in France. It was written in 1998 on the World Heritage List by UNESCO as the Chemins de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostela in France. It is a medium-sized building, with a total length of 51 m, from two distinct periods: the choir, the transept and the nave with its aisles were built between 1235 and 1270, except the upper part of the nave ; The latter, the bell tower, the chapels along the aisles and the ambulatory were added between 1476 and the middle of the 16th century. These extensions reflect the flamboyant Gothic style, except the lantern at the top of the bell tower, which is influenced by the Renaissance. The bell tower is a remarkable work, just like the choir and the transept, which represent the oldest parts of the church and are an interesting illustration of the pre-ray style. The interior of the church is marked by the transformations of the end of the old regime, in particular on a marble coating of the choir and a clothing of the pillars of the nave by woodwork. The church is affiliated with the parish of the sixteen carmelites of Compiègne.
