Church of the most important parish of Senlis until the Revolution, this pre-Romanesque building has undergone many architectural modifications. The massive square tower, 47m high, surmounted by a Renaissance style dome, dates from the end of the 16th century. Work of very high quality, the facade of Saint Pierre, dated 1516 in a cartouche to the left of the central portal, can reasonably be attributed to Martin Chambiges. St Pierre's church has had a fairly turbulent history since its disuse in 1791: fodder store, chicory factory, cavalry quarters from 1841, covered market, then burning chapel for the victims of the Turkish DC 10 tragedy. Airline in 1974. The city then decided to use the church as a cultural center where associations organize fairs, exhibitions and concerts every year. Did you know? Martin Chambiges has contributed to many major architectural projects: the Saint-Étienne cathedral in Sens, the Notre-Dame de Senlis cathedral, the Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul cathedral in Troyes, the Saint-Pierre cathedral in Beauvais, the Notre Dame bridge in Paris to name only the most famous monuments! The old St Pierre church is open for events and the European Heritage Days.
