Immaculée-Conception Church

Religious building, Listed or registered (CNMHS), Historic site and monument in L' Ajoupa-Bouillon
  • The parish church of the Immaculate Conception was erected in 1848 from a chapel built in the 18th century around a cross, on a land that served as a cemetery for the slaves of the surrounding plantations houses.

  • It was first served by the priest of Basse-Pointe, then by the priest of Grande Anse, before receiving its titular priest in 1877: Father François-Pierre Outil.
    By its volume and shape, it belongs to the group of churches of Baroque inspiration. On the other hand, the style of the facade is identical to the first church of Mouillage built by the Dominicans.

    The church underwent some transformations at the end of the 19th century, notably with the addition in 1880 of the hexagonal bell...

    The church underwent some transformations at the end of the 19th century, notably with the addition in 1880 of the hexagonal bell tower covered with a faceted dome and a bell tower. The two cross transepts were built in 1925. Finally, in 1962, the bell tower was demolished and the right chapel transformed into a steeple, independent of the church.

    During the years 1975-1976, the interior of the church was restored. During the 2000s, it benefited from several restoration campaigns and a new bell tower was built.
