A monument in Les Mureaux!

Again looking at my older posts realised missing some input into my blog. I did passed by here for an auto show (see post), and walked a bit around this aviation historical town . One of the monument that caught my eye was the Church of St Peter and St Paul of Les Mureaux. Let me tell you a bit about it as information is hard to come by and have no brochures.

les mureaux

Les Mureaux is a town in the Yvelines department 78 , in the Île-de-France region. Located on the banks of the Seine river, opposite Meulan and Hardricourt, the city of Mureaux is 39 km (about 24 miles) from Paris. You have direct train from Gare Saint Lazare in Paris very frequent direction Mantes la Jolie. Also, the road A13 autoroute de Normandie takes you here on exit/sortie 8.

What is available is that the current Church of St Peter and St Paul succeeds the older church built under king Henri IV. In 1890, Father Duval decided to build a new church larger than the previous one and preceded by a square (place de la liberation today). Construction ended in 1896 with the bell tower. made in the neo-Gothic style.

Easy to walk there as like from the train station go out to Rue Henri Dunant and turn left it takes you directly into Place de la Liberation bear left on the mairie or city/town hall and stay on Rue Carnot follow it a couple hundred meters to the church. By the road taking the exit 8 on the A13 direction centre ville or city center on the D43 or Avenue Paul Raoult just past the complex of the train station next road is Rue Henri Dunant take a left here and all the way as above.

I think that is there is an event like the auto show or an aviation event as it is the home of ESA the European Space Agency where rockets are put up together to be taken to French Guyana to shoot up the church is worth the visit. Hope it helps as these are the events that took me to see the église St Pierre et St Paul de Les Mureaux!

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!
