  • Monumental historical building. Too often skipped as unknown, it's absolutely worth a visit. A private parking by the hour is available underground
  • Once again thanks to Napoleon,in present day this church was designed in its present form as a temple to the glory of his army.Together with the banks of the Sein river,it is protected under UNESCO.Built in 1807 and completed in 1828.At the beginning it was named by Napoleon 'Temple to the Glory of the Great Army.
  • Striking building & interior decoration. Check out ahead for any concerts that may be played here, it’s a pretty cool experience if you enjoy classical music. The acoustic may not be the best depending on where you are seated, but the ambiance of the church and the music is unbeatable!
  • I experienced there holy time. The choir sang hymns like angel's praise God. You must go there in your life. Fantastic church!
  • my favorite church in paris. the lesser known big church. check it out. the architecture and inside decor is breathtaking.
