  • This church is a well-guarded "secret" of Paris. Outside the tourist areas (but not far from the Jardins du Luxembourg), it seems apparently closed. It can be visited from noon to 6 p.m. (except Mondays and Fridays): just ring the entrance bell on the far right of the gate, leave a document in the concierge and pay access to the musée du Service de santé des armées (5 euros). This is because the former monastery of Val-de-Grace is home to a military hospital (just to military medicine is dedicated the small museum, from which you can access the church). Considered one of the most beautiful churches in France, it is a masterpiece of the classic style French (17th century), a miracle of majesty and elegance at the same time. The dome rivals that of the Invalides for the title of the most beautiful in the city, the bronze canopy is inspired by that of Berninian of St. Peter. The monument, however, is in an excellent state of preservation. Very recommended.

  •  It is a church built with the gratitude of the birth of Louis 14.  It was a beautiful church, but it was in a corner of a hospital for military personnel and was part of a museum introducing first world war relief efforts, so I had a hard time getting in. A small fence door provided on the iron fence leading to the front of the building is the entrance. Because it is locked, I have you open it by pushing the doorbell. You can leave your passport at the entrance of the building and get a number card. At the reception of the museum, you pay the entrance fee.  There was a church just ahead of the museum.  There were no other visitors, and it was fortunate to be able to see the beauty of the baroque such as the ceiling painting slowly. In addition, since the day of the visit was opened from 12 o'clock, it is better to check it out in advance.
