  • This temple is located in no. 17 Street St. Anthony in the 4th district. He was previously a church, associated with the convent of Holy Mary of the Visitation, built in 1634 by the architect François Mansart precursor of the classical style in France, which was inspired by the Pantheon of Rome. This building is obviously very classic style with its columns topped by a large architectural arch, its capitals and its dome to Pinnacle. The Church is built on a square plan topped with a dome with openings side and 4 chapels or radial niches. The choir is treated to part with a large niche topped by a ventilated dome that makes light. The altar is very bare with a mural decoration of classic style with carvings of drapery. This church was originally dedicated to Christian worship. After the Revolution, when the convent was demolished, it was sold by Napoleon Bonaparte, then 1 Consul, in the reformed church of France, in 1802. The official name of Temple Sainte Marie. It can be visited every Saturday afternoon, access to the No. 15 rue Castex

  • A beautiful and historic church in the Marais district.
  • A characteristic monument from the center of Paris
