Chapelle du Sacré-Cœur des Feuillants

The foundation stone of the Chapel of the Sacred Heart of the Feuillants was laid in 1818 as the only neoclassical religious building in Poitiers. It is a replica of the Expiatory Chapel in Paris built during the Restoration and dedicated to Louis XVI and his wife, Marie-Antoinette. The religious congregation sold the chapel in 2018 to the Association Le Chant des Feuillants with the mission to restore the chapel and repurpose it as a cultural center in the heart of Poitiers.
