Photographer's Note

The Church of Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue was built in the heart of Vieux-Longueuil between 1884 and 1887, after plans by the architects Henri-Maurice Perrault and Albert Mesnard. It was constructed near the second parish church, built in accordance with the design by Father Conefroy between 1809 and 1811, and of which the interior was produced by Louis-Amable Quévillon assisted by Paul Rollin.
Flanked by asymmetrical towers, the façade of Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue brings to mind the great French cathedrals such as Notre-Dame d'Amiens with its two towers of unequal height.
The size of the church is impressive: 74 metres long including the sacristy, 41 metres wide at the transept, and almost 81 metres high to the top of the steeple. It was recognised as an historic monument in 1984.
