Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, Paris

4.6
Named for Roman Catholic St. Julian of Le Mans and his dedication to helping the poor, Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre represents one of the city's oldest religious buildings. Construction began in the 12th century during the same time as Notre Dame cathedral, but the church was never completely finished. Over the centuries, builders have added to and updated the Gothic structure. However, you can still see some of the oldest religious architecture outside of Notre Dame on a visit here. The church still operates, serving the Greek Melkite Catholic community. Use our Paris route planner to arrange your visit to Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre and other attractions in Paris.

  • This little multi Church architectural styles, often organizes classical concerts, including piano, or with 2 instruments, because there is little room for larger Orchestra formations. The program is available on the internet, and you can reserve their seats easily knowing that the number of places is reduced. The price is reasonable around 20 euros for 1:30 concert. We're sitting on the chairs of the Church who are not very comfortable, but it is sufficient if the show is good. That was the case when I went and the visit of the Church is always possible especially the magnificent polychrome iconostasis and also the architecture of this building quite confusing. Note that the Church is well heated! Access is possible from the metro station "Saint Michel Notre Dame"

  • A small Cathedral Chapel of the Cathedral of the Orthodox Church rather than the usual, but Catholic. Altar in such a form that can be seen in Russia, and there are also a lot of Western Europe felt the torch inside the beauty, but the Orthodox do it.

  • This church, the oldest of paris is contemporary with our Lady. The Gothic church has retained marquees which the finest are decorated with harpies but overall a lot of charm.' At the end of the 19th century, Saint-Julien-le-poor is dedicated to the Greek Catholic faith melchitec, that is to say the Catholic Church of Byzantine rite.

  • Amazing old church of Melkite Greek Catholics in the neighborhood of Notre-Damme Cathedral.
  • What it lacks in size, it makes up in charm. Nice paintings and a fabulous altar.
  • Beautiful old church in Paris with the long and complicated history! Apparently one of the oldest in Paris, worth spending one or two hours studying the icons - especially during the concerts as many of the small classic life performance are organised here.
  • A superb old church where one can hear outstanding music recitals. Chopin is just beautiful!!
  • Not sure how often Miho performs at St. Julienne but follow the many advertisements posted all around the city. A unique experience we shall never forget. On a chilly night the church was heated and very comfortable. Miho was happy to sign autographs and pose for photos after the very moving performance. Rhapsody In Blue a real highlight.
