You can't miss this church, as it stands right next to the Panthéon. Delicately beautiful inside and out, l'Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont houses a unique early-16th-century rood screen that sweeps across the nave like a bridge with spiral staircases on both sides. The wooden pulpit is supported by Samson with a jawbone in his hand and a slain lion at his feet.... More

Don't miss this one. Tucked away behind the Pantheon it is intimate, stunning, and empty. I was there about 10:00am and there were only two other people in the church. They were not tourists, they were locals who just came to pray.

The Saint Etienne du Mont Church made famous in Woody Allen’s ‘Midnight In Paris, where while on a trip to Paris with his fiancee's family, a nostalgic screenwriter played by Owen Wilson, finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s every day at midnight when he sat on the stairs of the church. It was worth a visit, especially if... More

This is a beautiful old church and is well worth the visit. It will make up for your stop at the Pantheon if you choose to make a stop there, as it is right next door. There are a number of really nice altars here and some nice stained glass.

Walking around the Pantheon area on a Sunday afternoon, this seemed like a hidden little church that got no attention whatsoever in my guidebook. And maybe it wasn't my day or maybe they were closed for a siesta since the streets around the church were also rather quiet. Either way, I couldn't get in. So i never got around to... More

St. Etienne Du Mont. Each church in Paris has its own personality and this one is worth a visit if only to see the fine 16th century stone work of the choir screen. It is also the church featured in "Midnight in Paris" (Owen Wilson waiting on steps of this church for his ride) if you are a movie buff.

I would skip this unless you really like churches. Nothing special from another church. Save your money.

Beautiful piece of architecture that is out of the limelight when compared to other famous Gothic architecture in Paris; this just means there's no ridiculous queues though! The outside is especially impressive but please be respectful of some of the worshipers in there, some tourists were very rude and loud when some people were clearly trying to pray.

Believe what you read about this church! It is wonderful. it is not far off the beaten path, but probably just enough to make it that much more special. The design, glass, organ, everything is wonderful! The uniqueness of this place is enough to search it out, but the significance of its design make it really worthwhile.

This is a jewel that I missed the first few times I was in Paris even though it was close to the hotel where we stayed. It is one of the most beautiful churches inside. Please do not miss this if you are close. It is worth a trip across the city to see it.
