Very ornate church

Great place to get away from the crowds and meditate. The staircase is a marvel. Bit of a walk to get there, but worth it.

We visited this church during the holidays because it was very close to our apartment. The history of this church is beyond any review here but it is fascinating. My point here is that whether you are catholic or not, a visit during a Sunday 11:00am mass is so worth the visit.

My wife and I enjoyed visiting this church several times on our recent trips to Paris. It's not as essential to your trip as Notre-Dame or Sacre-Coeur presumably, but this is a lovely charming place in Left Bank area up near Rue Mouffetard and Pantheon. The church is named after Saint Stephen but is known in Paris more as the... More

St Etienne du Mont is often overlooked as it is behind the Pantheon. It is a lovely gothic church, full of history and beautiful architecture. Along with St Genevieve, the patroness of Paris, such illustrious men as Pascal and Racine were entombed here. St. Geneviève's tomb was destroyed during the Revolution, but the stone on which her coffin rested was... More

We came upon this place by accident while walking from the Pantheon, and I am glad we found it. While the outside is stunning the inside was absolutely amazing. Definitely worth seeing.

I went to the 11am mass here a few weeks ago and was glad I did because the church is beautiful, particularly the choir screen with the spiraling staircases. Very well maintained and in a pleasent neighborhood. One of my favorite churches in Paris.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
