It is the magnificent church of the town of Sainte-Anne. If there is one place to see in Sainte-Anne, it is this religious building. With its cathedral areas, the church amazes visitors from all over the world. Listed as a historical monument, this church is the pride of the inhabitants of Sainte-Anne. It moves the crowds but also the filmmakers. This is how a scene from the movie The Mermaid from Mississippi was shot in the church yard.
Yet it was another fate that awaited this structure at the base. In fact, from 1922, it was on the initiative of the Alsatian father Daubenberger that the building dating from 1857 became a house of God. The father wanted to set up a common project to bring together all the faithful of the town. He began by decorating the church with the children of the catechism. This is how the children made cement molds in the shape of angels, floral motifs and more. These moldings still decorate the facade of the church today, worthy of a real theater decor. If you are in the East of the island behind the wheel of your rental car, in Saint-Anne this religious monument is worth the detour!
