Founded in the seventh century, Eglise St-Germain l'Auxerrois is famous for its bell, Marie, which sounded on Aug. 23, 1572, marking the beginning of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre. That day, a mob killed thousands of Huguenots, or French Protestants, visiting the city for a royal wedding. Despite its gory history, this church offers many beautiful things to see, including a 15th-century wooden statue of St. Germain, a stone statue of St. Vincent sculpted about the same time, a wooden Flemish altarpiece, and the famous church wardens pew, where important people sat.

朝の散歩の途中で、訪れましたが、建物は工事中でした。補修は必要でしょうね。最も朝早く、内部に入ることはできませんが。 more »I visited in the middle of a walk in the morning, but the building was under construction. Repairs will be needed. Although you can't get inside most early in the morning.
scoperta perchè passeggiavo intorno al Louvre, aspettando che scattasse il mio orario di passafila. Niente male davvero: da visitare more »discovered because I was walking around the Louvre, waiting for my passing time to start. Not bad really: to visit
Beautiful church next to the Louvre with free entry. The inside is absolutely stunning rich in history. The statues, the stained glass and the altar were very beautiful and worth the visit. Recommend visiting if you have time.
This Roman Catholic Church is one of the many churches you'll find in Paris, it is closer to the Louvre Museum, the tower is impressive, the church has stained glass and a rose window, there are wooden statues , and the Flemish altarpiece is just amazing. This one is worth visiting too. This place is next to the city hall of the district of Paris.
