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.

Great church that does a nice job of promoting its historical importance to the area and the city of Paris. As others say, it is worth a quick visit. The architecture is a bit of mixed bag, just as most existing churches of the age are in Paris.

St Etienne is usually regarded as a extra ornament in a Pantheon panoramic picture. The crowds of tourists that gather in the monumental Pantheon usually don´t have the time to walk another block and spend a few minutes in this beautiful and unique church. The stone filigree of the double stairs give this church its signature.

If you are visiting the Panthéon turn left and you will find this church hidden behind it, on the same open plaza. It is one of the oldest churches in Paris with foundations dating back to the 6th C. It formed part of the Abbey of St Geneviève - the patron saint of Paris. Entry is free and as with... More
