This church with its massive steeple is well worth a visit. The best view is inside the church up the hollow steeple. It is quite a fascinating building in this otherwise somewhat prosaic town.

I guess on first sight, you probably either love or loathe this church! I love it, I think it's such an unusual building, and I am so glad we all went inside to view the interior. It's a fascinating church, with a very interesting history,...More

St Joseph Church is to Le Havre what Eiffel tower is to Paris, the church was built in the 1950's and was once used by sailors as a beacon to guide them to the city

so much stained glass and easy to access not much into churches but the unusual design and the windows in the tower are stunning

I almost didn’t go inside, but I’m so glad I did! It is quiet, somber, and not crowded at all. The view is stunning!

Surprisingly beautiful for a modern church. Lots of stained glass allows interesting light into the church.
