Religious Site Landmark
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.

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.

  • This is a beautiful church is right next to the pantheon. If you're in the area it's worth the visit. It is not one of the grand cathedrals but stunning and grand inside.  more »
  • Easy to find right next to the Pantheon it is worth popping in to. Just to see the beautiful spiral staircases.  more »
  • Beside the Pantheon, this church is a beautiful stop. Unfortunately a full tour was not allowed due to an event, but enjoyable to see the fine art and architecture.  more »

  • 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)
  • One of the interesting architecture i saw. You have to go inside too. It is for free and you don't need much time.
  • Very beautiful church. Must to visit
