St. Julien le Pauvre, Paris

(4.4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Named for Roman Catholic St. Julian of Le Mans and his dedication to helping the poor, St. 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. Plan to visit St. Julien le Pauvre during your Paris vacation using our convenient Paris itinerary planner.

  • We attended a wonderful piano concert by Pianist Nitto in St Julien Le Pauvre church. Perfect setting for Chopin and Gershwin like I have never heard it played before. Well worth the 23 euros.
