Notre-Dame de Bonsecours Church

Intérieur de Notre-Dame de Bonsecours

When the Battle of Nancy came to an end, thousands of corpses were buried in a vast ditch near the Jarville stream. In 1484, a priest obtained Duke René II’s permission to build a chapel and a hermitage there. The sanctuary, named Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours by the Duke, was sometimes called the Church of Our Lady of Victory and the Kings…

A modest chaple and sanctuary lay until 1738  on the site of the graves of the Burgundians who died at the Battle of Nancy. Over time, it had been remodelled and expanded many times until finally it was razed by Stanislas. Emmanuel Héré was commissioned by Stanislas to build a baroque church in which he lies at rest along with his wife, close to the heart of his daughter Maria Leszczynska, wife of king Louis XV.
