#183 of 208 in Historic Sites in Paris
Notre-Dame de Clignancourt is a Roman Catholic church located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Completed in 1863, the church takes its name from Clignancourt, a small village in the commune of Montmartre that was annexed to Paris in 1860. It was one of three new parishes created to accommodate the growing population in the northern edge of the city.
The cornerstone was laid by the French city planner Georges-Eugène Haussmann in 1859. It was designed in the Neo-Romanesque style by Paul-Eugène Lequeux and completed in 1863. Many valuable pieces of furniture and religious objects were donated by Empress Eugenie, the wife of Napoleon III, but were lost or damaged when the church was pillaged in the violence leading up to the Paris Commune in 1870.
The church still contains paintings and frescos by prominent 19th-century artists, including Romain Cazes and Félix-Joseph Barrias, and a large marble sculpture depicting the Pietà. The stained glass windows in the lower part of the church are largely from the Art Deco period. The windows in the choir, depicting the Holy Trinity and the Litany of Loreto, were made by Jacques Le Chevallier in the 1970s.

  • Baron Haussmann laid the foundation stone to meet the demand of the inhabitants of the District of Clignancourt, who were obliged to "go up" to Saint-Pierre de Montmartre. It has beautiful stained glass windows; The chapel of the virgin is interesting.

  • The building decorates very well the landscape of the Largo in which it is, disputing the attentions with the beautiful building of the prefecture of the 18th District, but its interior does not present anything very special.
