Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, Paris
(4.7/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, in full Église Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, is a Melkite Greek Catholic parish church in Paris, France, and one of the city's oldest religious buildings. Built in Romanesque style during the 13th century, it is situated in the 5th arrondissement, on the Left Bank of the Seine River, about 500 meters away from the Musée de Cluny and in the proximity of the Maubert-Mutualité Paris Métro station. It shares a city block with the Square René Viviani.Originally a Roman Catholic place of worship, Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre was built in stages from the 12th to the 19th centuries, and granted to the Eastern Catholic Melkite community in 1889. Its design was modified several times, and the resulting church is significantly smaller in size than originally planned.NameThe church was dedicated to two medieval French saints of the same name: Julian of Le Mans and a figure from the region of Dauphiné. "The poor" is said to originate from Julian of Le Mans, whose dedication to the cause of the poor was considered exemplary.

  • 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.
  • Had a piano concert here. J.C.Millot. Fantastic.
  • wow perfect lovely I very love somuch I am sripattharawade chotikul
  • The early church with real and unique atmosphere. Easy access especially for concerts that are held inside. Phones only pinao ones, at the foot of the altar almost in contact with the pianist. Excellent quality of pianists and repertoires that run. One of those simple things but content and degree of success. In Beethoven, and Chopin are to master! And that is nice!
