Wonderful site in Paris. However, due to reformation works, not Much to see at this time. Antway, if one is nearby, go and have a look

We stopped here quickly whilst exploring Saint Germain, it is worth having a look at the church with its large facades. There is plenty to see nearby if you aren't interested in seeing another church.

We dd a walking tour of this quarter and it included a guided tour of this very old church that was once the center of a large religious neighborhood. The church has been somewhat altered over the years. Old and impressive.

We were eating lunch nearby at Cafe de Flore so we made a quick stop here after since it was close by. It’s free to enter and worth the stop to check it out if you are in the area.

Right now -- August 2018 -- if you stop in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, you will be greated by walls and walls of scaffolding and tarps. Go ahead and walk down the aisle and take a look at what they are doing. The congregation, diocese, whomever is undertaking...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
