Eglise Saint Clément

St Clément’s church, dating from 1632, is remarkable for its vaulted ceiling embellished with biblical frescoes. These works date from the 1950’s and were restored in 2005. They represent episodes in the story of salvation and the story of Jesus. One can see the 17th century crucifix which came from the Cordeliers chapel. The Chancel shows local saints: Bernadette, St Vincent of Paul and St. Clement, the patron of the church. The altar, centrepiece of the church, is in white marble and was taken from the former neo-gothic retable. As is the case for many ancient churches, Vieux Boucau also has its war memorial on which are inscribed the names of ‘Boucalais’ who fell in the last wars.
