The interior of this church is something you must absolutely see! In Paris 5th arrondissement (district) it is easy to find. Unfortunately, it is also easy to miss. At No. 79 Rue Galande, it is situated where the street runs into Rue Saint Jacques which...More

I would recommend this as a must see visit. Beautiful old church set in an interesting history and a very attractive garden.. There are concerts performed many evenings, I m just sorry that I did not get to see one. Highly recommended for a visit.

This church regularly presents performances by various classical musicians, though it's most noticeable for the crumbling ruin wall (see pic). It's located in the Latin Quarter and the streets all around it are really small, sort of village style streets worth taking a stroll around.

You need to bone up on the history of this small and ancient church before visiting; but the church also hosts evening concerts if you wish an alternative purpose to visit. Or just take your lunch baguette and sit on one of the benches in...More

We walked through the church garden on our way to the Pantheon and saw the exterior of the church. It appeared to be a very old church near the river. We would have stopped in but during services Sunday morning.

Do pop in and have a look at this rather different church. It is small and intimate but has an ambience of it's own. Has concerts were too during the summer.
