Eglise Notre Dame des Champs, Paris

4.4
Notre-Dame-des-Champs is a station on line 12 of the Paris Métro in the 6th arrondissement.HistoryThe station opened on 5 November 1910 as part of the original section of the Nord-Sud Company's line A between Porte de Versailles and Notre-Dame-de-Lorette. On 27 March 1931 line A became line 12 of the Métro. It is named after the nearby Notre-Dame des Champs Church on the Boulevard du Montparnasse and is designed by the architect and engineer Gustave Eiffel.Station layoutTilingThe entrance to the station, and the ceramics throughout the station, have maintained the pure style of the Nord-Sud Company. The ceramics above the tunnel entrances indicating the direction of the tunnel are still present. The station's ceramics are by Boulenger & Co; they used pre-printed tiles for the tablets indicating the name of the station, as did the Gien ceramics company subsequently, but the edges of the letters are rounded not angular.

  • Beautiful church in Montparnasse in Paris. Many young people and to be Sunday afternoon several people. Beautiful statue of our Lady. I'm going to read some historical reference to learn more!

  • This church is located in the No. 91 of the Boulevard of Montparnasse in 6 district in its southern boundary. It is neo-Roman style and date of 1876. In fact this fairly recent Church, succeeds in this place, buildings of worship from a Roman temple dedicated to mercury. Then with the arrival of Christianity in Gaul, the temple takes the name of our Lady of vines. Indeed we must imagine this place in the middle of the vineyards from the 3 rd century, where Saint Denis of Paris came during his visit to Lutèce. Later the Benedictines create a Priory at this place and the Church takes the name of our Lady of the fields since located outside the walls of Paris. The Revolution end the existence of the Priory. Isn't that in 1876 as the district, missing place of worship, built the present church with cladding in limestone "cliquart", taking in the quarries in the Paris Region, including Châtillon and in Clamart. The building is structured with a metal frame, which allows to achieve a height of the high nave, in little time and without push-button Arc. The façade is inspired of the Romanesque churches with a large central part at two levels, and a large rose window in a tent. The portal is surmounted by a tympanum with sculptures of the Virgin and child in the style "Roman'". A square bell tower, perforated, is located on the side of the street of Cice North the jewels of this church are unquestionably 22 superb painted canvas panels placed on the side of the nave, the work of Joseph Aubert, which relate the life of Mary. The nave is high with semicircular arches and pillars in elevation. It is open from many clear windows, which give a very intense light. Another masterpiece, the way of the cross made of grisailles on bottom of copper is beautiful chorus is simple, airy and uncluttered and we see in perspective the chapel of the Virgin, with a bright modern style cross. The side chapels have beautiful paintings including those of sacred heart and St. Joseph. The chapel of the Virgin is framed by two beautiful stained glass and surmounted by a barrel vault painted by Joseph Aubert, always! This church is worth a visit for the masterpieces it contains and is accessible by the metro station "Vavin" line no. 4

  • This church has made a very average impression-not very old (19 century), not very interesting. Met her on the way. But once met, then entered and inspected. Is not an object of special tourist interest, not worth wasting your precious time.
