Beautiful old building, lovely stained glass windows.
The churchis currently being updated, as its very run down. the high glass windows are lovely, however the lower windows are plain or have clear glass.
Nice church to sit in and reflect on the day.

From the outside it did not look that impressive we were not sure if it was open !!
In side music was playing and they were filming, we believe, a religious festival for the local TV Station.
In side a very impressive Cathederale with a long hostory going back to Louis XIV, maybe not as decorative as some cathederales we have visited but it was worth a visit if only to find your wayin through the double door entrance!!

Sometimes when you are not looking for something you can have the most memorable experience.
This cathedral dominates the cobbled square in the centre of the oldest residential quartier of Versailles,the Saint Louis area, which comprises original 16 century buildings many of which are being restored.
On the day we stumbled on this area walking back to our hotel in Rue d'Anjou,the organist was practicing in the cathedral. Our friends, who live in Versailles, later told us that the cathedral is often used for concerts....music always changes the experience of being in a church and for us it was a magical experience. It is like many old cathedrals, dark, cold and empty but it is easy to let your mind wander and think of it as it once was. To imagine the enormous doors thrown open, the cathedral filled with nobility waiting the arrival of the king. It is the building structure and form that dominates the area that is most impressive. If you are passing by just wander in and perhaps like us you will experience music that transforms a building.

Very grand inside and out. Standing outside the Palace grounds but is worth the short walk to view it.

This is a nice Cathedral and it has a history that is a key part of the revolution and Versailles. The only downside is someone got away with ruining the altar by placing a dreadful grey Modernist piece in the middle of the church. Go and spend time at the real altar that still fortunately still sits at the front and compare them, then wonder how so many churches have been allowed to be wrecked in this way since the 1960s.

This is a very quiet & one of the oldest parts of Versailles,, the cathedral is very grand & set in a beautiful square. The first time I was there it was a warm sunny afternoon & there is a small bar in the rue de cathedrale leading up to the square & front door,,, 2 guys hammering out billie halliday classics on classical guitar,,, summertime indeed ,,, chilling out perfection,,, one of lifes magical moments.

On your way out from Versailles back to the train station make a small detour and stop by this cathedral. It is a nice spot away from the commercialism of the main streets. Wander the back streets to get a more residence feel of Versailles.

Standard European cathedral with some activities. Some cafes around to give your feet a rest from the day of Versailles.

I found Cathedral Saint-Louis by accident whilst strolling around the streets of Versailles. It’s located in a beautiful historical district with many gorgeous neoclassical buildings. If staying in the area of Versailles it’s definitely worth a visit.
