Wow, I was really impressed by this church! Actually, my route included plenty of churches to visit but this and when I went into it, I was so surprised about this hidden jewel. There are second level corridors, similar to long terraces, all along the church. It is something I had never seen before and that it is so worth... More

My favorite church in Paris. Beautiful both inside and to walk around and see from different angles. A great neighborhood for strolling, with lots of restaurants, pubs, cafes close by. Doesn't have tons of tourists gawking about so that is a huge plus.

We had arranged to be here just before it opened so we could have a quick look inside before visiting the Pantheon, and although it did say 10:00am unfortunately that time came and went with no opening. We were forced to look around from the outside, which took only 10-15 minutes. Really lovely from the outside, and great for a... More

A recent sunny Sunday morning found us attending Mass at this beautiful Church, a harmonious mélange of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Unlike the Notre Dame on the Ile de la Cité that makes one feel terribly puny with its hugeness and soaring buttresses and its crowds of visitors, this Church (only a stone’s throw away from the Panthéon) is for...

This was a re-visit after about 20 years. Approached coming uphill from the east (Metro L10, Cardinal LemMoine), entered by SE door into apse/ outside the choir. Decorated Old "Tomb" of St Genevive near this entrance, although her remains were removed and desecrated by the Communards. It's a building with good natural light which shows off the creamy stonework. The... More

Another beautiful church in Paris France. Both inside and outside! Just stroll in and you'll see! Leave a donation, as all the churches free to enter.

Located next to the left rear side of the Pantheon this too is worth a visit. The carved wooden pulpit is reason enough to visit.

Lovely church inside and out well worth a visit! When we went in live music was playing which added to the atmosphere. Sit on the steps outside and image the old car coming to collect you just like the movie Midnight in Paris! We strolled down the street at had a coffee in a lovely Paris cafe (although there is...

This is an under-rated church to visit. Construction of the present church was started in 1492, but the Abbey from which it originated goes back much earlier. It contains the shrine to Sainte-Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris. The rood screen and pulpit are of special interest. The church is near the Pantheon, which was originally built to replace it,... More

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.
