20th century Nio-Gothic church
Dominating Aizenay is its enormous church, this magnificent building with its beautiful stained glass is characteristic of the early twentieth century, with its innovative techniques including its use of the first poured concrete. The neo-Gothic architecture is quite remarkable, it opened for worship on Christmas Day 1905, was consecrated in 1965 and celebrated its centenary in 2006. The great organ Cavaille-Coll, of 1875, originally  situated at the church of Paray-le-Monial, was purchased by the parish of Aizenay. A processional cross, given by Louis XIII in April 19th 1622, is  displayed behind a glass case along with a sanctuary lamp in silver (17th century), chalices, statues and old crucifixes
Just outside of the town is the old railway station that played a fundamental role in its early development, and is now the town’s tourist information office.
All around Aizenay there are pleasant forest walks with an abundance of flora and fauna
