The Church, Notre-Dame du Pentecote in Lille

The church is officially known as "Eglise du Sacré-Coeur", the holly heart. The church dates from the 19th century and is located on Rue Nationale. We particularly love the details in the church tower. The style is neo gothic. The altar has so many decorations in white marble. We had to hurry because our visit was just before the start of a mass celebration. This was our last Lille article and after our full day walking, our dog Tommie was very tired.

De kerk is officieel gekend onder de naam "Eglise du Sacré-Coeur", de kerk van het heilige hart. De bouw werd voltooid in de 19de eeuw en ze is gevestigd in Rue Nationale. In het bijzonder houden we van de details in de toren. De architecturale stijl is Neogotiek. Het altaar is wit en heeft vele marmeren decoraties. We moesten ons haasten want ons bezoek was juist voor het begin van een mis. Dit was ons laatste Lille artikel en na een dag vol wandelen waren wij alsook onze hond Tommie, zeer moe.
