Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, Paris

4.7
St. Geneviève was responsible for saving Paris from the Huns in 451 CE, and her shrine in Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont has been a popular place of pilgrimage ever since. The church as it stands dates from between 1492 and 1626, and is a mix of Gothic and Renaissance architectural styles. The Renaissance rood screen is the sole survivor from its era left in the city.

  • The Church that I attended for many years and where my son was baptized, living next door. Back from the Pantheon in a small square and opposite the Lycée HENRI IV. Very beautiful church as well outdoors as indoors suite facelift. See the magnificent JUBE, impressive finesse, certainly one of the most beautiful in the world... See absolutely and without moderation... And a lot of small restaurants nearby etc...

  • The Church of St. Stephen from the Hill is a place where previously not heard, and which today I have to say that this is one of the most magnificent monuments of Paris foreshadowing much more familiar objects. Already a solid outer with a very large asymetrycznością is compelling. The Interior of the even grander with fantastic the only preserved in Paris, Rood screen (Gallery between the nave the main part to the clergy and the faithful). Splendid pulpit and other design elements. In the Church are the relics of the Saint. Sebastiana-patroness of Paris. The necessary point on the route after Paris, the more that is right next to the much more famous Panthéon.

  • This church was built on the foundations of an early medieval Abbey is located next to the Pantheon. Free of charge, and a nice location for a candle to light.

  • We were heading to the Pantheon, when this magnificent church came out in front of us. Too pity we didn t have time to visit it entirely, it is very underestimated.
  • Guide books will explain this church's coherent and beautiful architecture. Its reputation is justified. The rood screen (a structure intended to hide the celebration of the Mass in the chancel from parishioners in the nave) is the only one surviving in Paris, and it's most elegant. Blaise Pascal and Racine are buried here.
  • While everyone might be in the area to see the pantheon this church was worth a visit on its own. It has many different architectural elements and the relics of Saint Genevieve. In the back there were some very friendly people who invited us into a separate room to look at some very old and beautiful stained glass.
  • Beautiful church! Worth stopping by.
  • One of the lovely parish churches of Paris - make sure you go to the back of the church to see the stunning stained glass windows (among the oldest in Paris)

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
