Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, Paris

4.7
#19 of 96 in Historic Sites in Paris
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.

    I loved meeting the interior, especially the stained glass Windows, this beautiful church, but also your external staircase which was the scene of delicious movie Midnight in Paris. Looks good near the Pantheon.

    Much more beautiful than the Pantheon that is on their side. For me the most beautiful church of Paris, next to Notre Dame. The visit to the temple is not allowed during masses, but sometimes are accompanied by organ of unusual beauty and quality Sung masses. Just for that I was more time inside because it was a spirituality that we miss in many of our magnificent churches by carelessness in the liturgy in Spain.

    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.

    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.
