A very pretty little church near the Pantheon with an interesting history. Worth a visit when you're in the area

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.

A 'Rood Screen' was a common feature in Medieval Architecture. It was a partition between the Nave (the main body of the church) and the Sanctuary (the area around the altar.) It was called a 'rood screen' because a 'rood' was a sculptural crucifix which was mounted on top of the screen - hence a 'rood screen.' Most Catholic churches... More

Just beside the Pantheon is this lovely church, completely stunning from the outside thanks to the Gothic architecture, and totally beautiful within. Intricate carvings, beautifully preserved, so much detail, unlike much that I've seen before. This church is often overlooked, as people flock to the Pantheon, but personally, this would be my recommendation if you were short for time, simply... More

The outside of this beautiful church is like so many others in Paris, but the real treat was opening the doors and taking a look at the interior. We had stopped here, as part of a walking tour, when following many of the paths of Hemingway. I can’t say they he was ever at this church; however it is definitely... More

Next to the Pantheon, in a lovely neighborhood, this church is a simmer. Not only were the steps used in the movie Midnight in Paris, but the inside is wonderful, featuring a gorgeous rood screen unlike anything we had seen.

We stopped for the typical "Midnight in Paris" movie shot on the stairs. When we went inside we were blown away by the beauty of this church. Patron saint of Paris, St. Genevieve is buried here in a golden tomb with a beautiful golden altar. Another spectacular site are the marble spiral staircasess.

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.
