Sainte-Anne Church

Monument - Sainte-Anne

Rebuilt of reinforced concrete between 1930 and 1935 following the terrible hurricane of 1928, this church is the work of “Architect to the Colonies” Ali Tur. As is the case with the five other religious edifices Tur designed in Guadeloupe, the building’s facade is characterized by strict symmetry, with three-dimensional features (ornamental elements and sculptures). The Art Deco influence gives the nave a feeling of spaciousness. A presbytery is located across from the church, with a lovely cottage garden that harkens back to Guadeloupe’s past.
