  • In the 18th arrondissement, at 11 rue Yvonne le Tac, you will discover this Chapel of the Sisters Helping. It turns out that these Sisters left this place in 1972 for 9 rue des Cottages in the same borough and Sainte Geneviève des Grandes Carrières became their parish. Here, there remains the Crypt of the Martyrium of Saint Denis but which is only open on Fridays and the first weekend of the month from 3 to 6 p.m. Metro line 12, station "Les Abbesses".

  • I think that there is confusion about this Chapel, seen on the photos of "Linda" Mc Pedrosa. Because it has nothing to do with the crypt which is at no. 11 Street Yvonne le Tac, in Montmartre. This street is located near the place des Abbesses and share the above left of the post office, in the 18th arrondissement. You can visit the small crypt only Friday from 15 h to 18 h, which limits the possible choices. In addition, there is really nothing to do in this small crypt located in the sub floor. The only interest is the guide that takes through it the history of this place. The building that houses the crypt is also occupied by a school, which uses the old chapel of the convent located upstairs as refectory! So it cannot be visited. History of the crypt called"Martyrium"dates from 1870, which was given to the convent of the sisters helpers who will occupy the places until 1972. This crypt pays tribute to the martyrdom of Saint Denis, first bishop of Lutetia between 2 and 3 rd centuries (historians are not agree), beheaded by the Romans, on the "Mons Mercurius" dedicated to the God mercury at that time, current Montmartre (Mount of Martyrs) . It is a free interpretation of these episodes, because instead of the beheading would be on the current location of the crypt. It's Sainte Geneviève, spiritual patron of Paris, which in the 5th century had decided to build a chapel on this site. Then attributed to this place the visit of Ignatius of Loyola, in 1534, then a student at the University of the Sorbonne, which will be the founding father of the Jesuits. He would have vowed to devote himself to the Christian worship after this visit to the Martyrium. During the time around 1611, an Abbey is founded on this place, but it will be destroyed at the Revolution. In summary if you pass by there a Friday between 15: 00 and 18: 00 enter and see! It will always be happy to guide which is charming. This place is accessible by the metro station "Abbesses" line no. 12
