Built in the 17th century, in the Baroque style, to us has a strikingly beautiful facade, which commands attention by the passerby.

This large church is not on the top list of Parisian churches; yet it is one the largest in the whole city - which you may not realize when seeing the outside from the fashionable Rue Saint-Honoré. The church is named after the saint of apothecaries, pilgrims, dentists.... after initially having been named after Saint Susanna. The works started in the early 16th century went on till late 18th century; while inside chapels were still added into the 19th century. The length of the church is an impressive 126 meters! You can also find bullet holes on the facade - leftovers of fierce battles during the French revolution. On the inside note the chapel dedicated to the deported people to the camps during WWII; but also the beautiful golden side chapels giving such a special light to the central nave. The Chapel of the Virgin has a baroque decoration with clouds in relief with small cherubs looking down on the Holy Family. So many fascinating details to admire; and not getting full credit in a city so full of churches.

This large church, which took almost 90 years to build, was completed in 1740 and is located on the Rue Saint Honore. The church was built on the site of an earlier church and a 16th century chapel that was dedicated to Saint Suzanne. One of the chapels in this current church is dedicated to Saint Suzanne. The church is also reported to have been at the centre of events during the French Revolution with numerous bullet holes in its facade only being repaired during the church's restoration in 2000. The exterior facade is rather imposing with an enormous central portal and two smaller, but still large, portals on either side. There are two Doric columns, with full length stone statues of saints (?) in between them on either side of the central portal and a further four Doric columns, one on each side of the two smaller portals. On the upper level above the main portal is a large arched stained glass window with a more modern looking blue and gold faced clock at the top of it. There are two Corinthian columns, with full length stone statues of saints in between them, and one embedded Corinthian column on either side of this window. Above this window at the top of the church is a triangular tympanum. There are two large stone statues at the corners of the church at the top of the lower level. There are also approximately 13 steps from the footpath to enter the church. The interior of the church, which is approximately 125 metres long and 35 metres wide is quite beautiful with some superb side chapels, magnificent paintings and frescoes and lots of marble and gold. The church has a central nave with two side aisles being separated from the central nave by a series of square semicircular arched stone and marble pillars which have Doric pilasters on either side of them. The ceilings of the nave and side aisles have barrel vaulted roofs but there are windows, many that run the length of the upper level of the church on either side of the central nave that let in an enormous amount of natural light. Between the two levels is a wide cornice decorated with circular motifs. There is a beautifully frescoed dome and semi-circular almost rib vaulted ceiling with stained glass windows over the main altar, the Chapel of the Virgin, which is a mass of marble statues and gold. At the rear of the Chapel of the Virgin is an ambulatory, with some wonderful paintings that leads to the fresco domed Chapel of the Calvary. There are 23 side chapels most with superb works of art including sculptures and paintings. Remarkably the church's interior furnishing have recovered and even prospered since it was ransacked by a mob in 1815. This church is well worth a look as is the sight of the couple of tiny shops that hang off the side of the church in the rue Saint Roch.

Masses are at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, 9:00 a.m,1130, and 6:30 p.m., On Sundays. The church is absolutely beautiful. Lots of history. The services were held in the very back of the church behind the main altar. It is located between the opera house and Louvre.
