Eglise de la Sainte-Trinite, Paris

4.1
The Église de la Sainte-Trinité is a Roman Catholic church located in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, France. The church is a building of the Second Empire period, built between 1861 and 1867 at a cost of almost 5 million francs.
La Trinité, as it is known, was designed by Théodore Ballu as part of the beautification and reorganization of Paris under Baron Haussmann. Exterior figures of Faith, Hope, and Charity on the church were sculpted by Eugène-Louis Lequesne. The 93 meter-long church has a bell tower 63 metres high topped by a dome. The choir is ten steps higher than the nave and surrounded by an ambulatory. Also named after it are the rue de La Trinité and the square de La Trinité.
The church is accessible by the Métro (the nearby station, Trinité, is named after it) and is known internationally for its former organist, the French composer Olivier Messiaen. It was the location of Hector Berlioz's funeral, on 11 March 1869 and Georges Bizet's funeral in 1875.
The church's facade served as the inspiration for the design of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church in Quebec City and the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Sacramento, California.

  • We have visited Paris many times and walked passed this church and visited it at least on one occasions however on our most recent visit in February 2019 the front of the church was completely covered...  more »
  • Stayed near the Sun trinite Church, is being renovated and clean appearance of the whole fence was covered. I'd put in in is a plain ordinary Church.

  • Not the most famous church in Paris but one of my favorite. It is big, very well decorated. I visited it last summer during the heatwave, it was so relaxing to get inside.
  • We walked by because we took a wrong turn and definitely weren't sad to have done so!
