Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, Paris

4.7
St. Geneviève was responsible for saving Paris from the Huns in 451 CE, and her shrine in Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont has been a popular place of pilgrimage ever since. The church as it stands dates from between 1492 and 1626, and is a mix of Gothic and Renaissance architectural styles. The Renaissance rood screen is the sole survivor from its era left in the city.

  • I was curious to go to the place where Owen Wilson in Woody Allen's famous film "Midnight in Paris" is picked up every night to travel in the past, in the most fascinating eras that the capital French lived. Those scenes were shot right on the side staircase of this church, which is a real surprise since from an architectural point of view it can be considered a jewel. The interior is also beautiful and wide-ranging. It is also located in the Latin Quarter of Paris, one of the most lively and evocative places in the city. I suggest you stop by because you won't regret it.

  • The church was built in the first half of the 16th century. Located in the Latin quarter, next to the Pantheon.

  • Neat church next to the Panthéon. Groovy architecture, and the stained glass is a really nice painterly style that you don't see in the more medieval glass. Worth a visit if you're nearby.
  • Nice spot in the Latin Quarter. It was late so we were unable to enter. Great destination for a stroll at night, then pop in for a pint across the street. I thought it might be mobbed with fans of the movie "Midnight in Paris" taking selfies, but it was very peaceful at night.
