Spectacular interior

One of he most beautiful interiors I have seen in a cathedral, the attention to detail is amazing and like all cathedrals I have visited in Paris it is free to enter.

This gem features an unusual façade, combining various architectural styles, Baroque, Gothic & Renaissance; all in all, striking & attractive. Tucked around the corner from its more famous neighbour, The Pantheon, it's well worth visiting. The ornately carved rood screen, dating from the 1500s, is basically an immense pulpit, separating the church's chancel from its nave. Outside you'll find the... More

The historical core of Paris doesn't lack churches one bit. But amongst all the Gothic cathedrals, this Gothic-turned-Renaissance masterpiece is something to behold. St. Etienne du Mont is amazing, inside and out. From the beautiful Renaissance portal in the front, to the vitrages and intricately carved spiral staircases on the inside, there is much to please the eye here. Regardless... More

Everyone in my husbands family had all their sacraments here. It is perfectly restored and maintained. Took a photo on the same steps his parents were married on in 1950.

We have visited a lot of churches in Europe, and along with the Cologne Cathedral, and St Bavo's Cathedral this was one of the top 3 churches we visited. Absolutely beautiful inside.

Not as big or impressive as the pantheon but make sure you don't forget to visit this church, the interior makes it well worth a visit

We got a recommendation from another passenger on the airplane to Paris. The only cathedral from the Renaissance period was magnificent! We happened to visit while mass was ending. The acoustics in the church were amazing. The notes from the organs brought the whole place to life. Truly, an awe inspiring experience!

Located behind the Pantheon, St. Etienne du Mont is a lovely church. There was a service going on when I stopped in - so unfortunately I wasn't able to really look around - but that alone was a great experience.

Every time I go to Paris I like to visit this cozy church located just at the back of the most famous Pantheon church. The atmosphere inside is very romantic and it has a nice architectural design. It is dedicated to the town saint of 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.
