I visited in a town in Western Finland, which is named Uusikaupunki, New Town. It's established in 1617, so fairly new town then. It was build because sea was escaping and the trade needed a town with a harbor.

Old church was built in 1623-1629, an old stone church with wooden roof. (In this town, there is also New church, built 1858-1863, so remarkably new church that is)

Square de la Tour-Saint-Jacques - PARIS-2018-44 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Wikipedia reports that Saint-Jacques Tower is a monument located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France, on Rue de Rivoli at Rue Nicolas Flamel.

This 52-metre (171 ft) Flamboyant Gothic tower is all that remains of the former 16th-century Church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie ("Saint James of the butchers"), which was demolished in 1797, during the French Revolution, leaving only the tower. What remains of the destroyed church of St. Jacques La Boucherie is now considered a national historic landmark.
