Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, Paris

4.5
Named for Roman Catholic St. Julian of Le Mans and his dedication to helping the poor, Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre represents one of the city's oldest religious buildings. Construction began in the 12th century during the same time as Notre Dame cathedral, but the church was never completely finished. Over the centuries, builders have added to and updated the Gothic structure. However, you can still see some of the oldest religious architecture outside of Notre Dame on a visit here. The church still operates, serving the Greek Melkite Catholic community. Use our Paris route planner to arrange your visit to Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre and other attractions in Paris.

  • Nestled in the heart of the Latin Quarter, its construction dates back to the 12TH century, on the foundations of a SIXTH-century church. Simple but attractive for its history, it is one of the oldest churches in Paris. You Have to know her.

  • A very old church is a great place for the concerts they give(a lot of piano). Sound is fantastic and the ambiance intimate.
  • One of the oldest churches in town. Great concert series and acoustics.
