The church of Saint - Jacques is a Roman Catholic Gothic church located in Compiègne in France. It is inscribed in 1998 on the World Heritage List by UNESCO under the Routes of Santiago de Compostella in France. It is a building of medium size, with a total length of 51 m, from two distinct periods: the choir, the transept and the nave with its aisles were built between 1235 and 1270, except the upper part of the nave; the latter, the bell tower, chapels along the aisles and ambulatory were added between 1476 and the mid-sixteenth century. These extensions reflect the flamboyant Gothic style , except the lantern atop the tower, which is influenced by the Renaissance. The bell tower is a remarkable achievement, as the choir and transept, which in turn represent the oldest parts of the church and are an interesting illustration of the pre- radiating style . The interior of the church is marked by changes in the end of the Ancien Régime , including on a marble cladding of the choir and clothing of the pillars of the nave by the woodwork .
