JL NICOLAS

In Génicourt’s beautiful church, the architecture, furnishings, stained-glass windows and painted decor still give a very good idea of what a high-quality parish church looked like in the Renaissance period. In Lorraine, it was the era of Ligier Richier.This Flamboyant Gothic church was commissioned by Philippe de Norroy and his wife, Nicole d’Apremont, lord and lady of Génicourt. A square bell tower projecting beyond the West Front was added in the second half of the 16th century, on a protected hillside. The tower contains four defensive chambers, one above the other, and has six slit windows with fishtail, splaying out towards the interior of the building.These defensive features may have been built as late as the first half of the 17th century. The church was damaged during the First World War and has since been restored. It stands in the middle of the parish graveyard.Listed as historic monuments, the church and cemetery can be visited by making an appointment with the tourist office (free).The church is open from 3 to 5pm on the second Sunday of the month from June to October, or by appointment.Visits by appointment : 03 29 87 58 62
