Again by Neuilly sur Seine!

This is one of my stumping grounds while working in Paris and living in Versailles several years back. I did had to come for business reasons first, and know the city well, but then came for other and with family as the area is quite chic nice. I have mentioned a lot of the history on the town but need to tell you more about its monuments with new found pictures. Therefore, here is again by Neuilly sur Seine in dept 92 of Hauts de Seine, region of ïle de France!  

The parish Church Saint-Pierre, located at 90 Avenue du Roule (Avenue Achille-Peretti), was built between 1883 and 1914. It includes a Grand-Orgue  Mutin-Cavaillé-Coll from 1898. It is an impressive belltower coming up on the avenue!

The Church Saint-Pierre blessing of the first stone takes place on October 30, 1887 on July 5, 1896, Cardinal Richard proceeds to the blessing of the church, The official consecration of the church by Cardinal Dubois takes place after the Great War, on June 6, 1922. The church, however, remains unfinished because the exterior sculpted decoration was never finalized, with the exception of that of the porch and the side portals after 1945. There is a nice outdoor statue of Joan of Arc acquired in 1903, then installed the following year, for about ten months, at the bottom of the main staircase of the City Hall, It was inaugurated in the square located in front of the church on Sunday, May 7, 1905.
