  • The Catholic parish church of St. Louis-en-Ile-Ile in Baroque style on the island of St. Louis was built in the early 18th century on the site of the parish church of the year 1622. This is one of the smallest parishes in Paris, but her 30-meter spire of the Chapel is clearly visible from afar. During the French Revolution the Church was closed and looted, and in 1798 was recently sold to a private person. In 1817, the city of Paris purchased the Church. In the year 1842 made new stained-glass Windows. In the 19th century, numerous works of art were returned. Small and inconspicuous from the outside, but the inside is very beautiful and light Church. The walls of the Church are decorated with paintings of the 18th century. Portal doors date back to the 17-th century. They are carved from oak and decorated with medallions. Unfortunately, calmly and carefully inspect the Church failed, started rehearsal and we orosili off her.

  • Started in 1664 on the plans of Le Vau, it was completed in 1726 and dedicated to St. Louis. The King had the habit of s stop to pray on the island to the cows, which was subsequently attached to the Ile Saint-Louis. The Church has a nave and two collateral interrupted by a non-salient transept. The arch is in cradle strengthened bows doubleaux. The side aisles, separated by semicircular arches, are curved edges. This architecture is reminiscent, in simpler, Jesuit church of Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis, first church baroque to have been built in the capital. The luxurious decoration of St. Louis-to-island, based on multiple gilding and stucco, was designed by Jean-Baptiste de Champaigne (1631-1681). The Church preserves works of art, among which "The pilgrims of Emmaus" by Coypel (1746), an "Annunciation" by Fra Angelico, a "Saint - François de Salle" by Noël Hallé (18th century), "St. John and St. Peter healing a lame" Carle Van Loo (1742).

  • A beautiful parish church and one of the oldest in Paris - some magnificent stained glass windows. A quiet place to contemplate.
  • Very nice bell tower with holes. Sometimes good sacred shows.
  • The whole Île de Saint Louis is my favorite place in Paris. This church is very charming (and small) and have regular concerts (like most churches in Paris). Built around the end of XVII century, it has some nice paintings and stained glasses.
  • This is one of the oldest churches in Paris here on this island, which is one of the longest-inhabited areas of Paris - meaning back to the 13th c. and beyond.
  • It's unbelievable. What I felt, not words. It is so is preserved in its original form, that has got to be mold on the stone that conveys the atmosphere of mysticism, mystery. Bravo restovratoram, which emphasize, do not destroy the identity of the architectural monument.
