Built during the time when Seychelles was a French colony, the St Francis church of Baie Lazare is dedicated to St Francis of Assisi.

The church with its neo-gothic style is one of the many attractions of the Baie Lazare district due to its strategic location, providing a nice view of the small district of south Mahé.
 
The majestic stone monument still captivates the curiosity of many as to how in a time of no modern mechanisation, brave men were able to erect this magnificent piece of art.
