The most unique feature of Notre Dame des Anges, built in 1885, is the rare oil painting of Our Lady of Assumption gifted to the church by Napoleon III that the church houses. The pastel colours and the minimalist unassuming square appearance of the church emanate a peaceful vibe. The façade of the building sports Greco-Roman columns giving the church a slight touch of grandeur. Inside the church a mosaic of patterns is formed as the light filters through the stained glass, creating a magical, absorbing atmosphere. The church is located on Dumas Street. Different plaques and inscriptions on the church maintain the record of people important people involved in the church and thus showcase its long-winded history. Owing to the renovations between 2009 and 2012, the church has maintained its charm.
The church is also unique because the cemetery beside it has the tomb of Marquis de Bussy, a popular follower of Dupleix.
