Saint-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet is a Roman Catholic church in the centre of Paris, France, located in the 5th arrondissement. Since 1977, the church has been used by traditionalist Society of St. Pius X and remains in the Society's hands.History until 1977The church was first built in the 13th century and was reconstructed between 1656 and 1763.In 1612, Adrien Bourdoise founded a seminary at Saint-Nicolas.In the late 17th century noted harpsichordist Jean-Nicolas Geoffroy (1633–1694) served as titular organist of the church.In the 19th century the adjacent Mutualité site was occupied by a seminary. There, Ernest Renan studied under the direction of the Abbé Dupanloup, who attained celebrity in 1838 when he reconciled the notoriously amoral diplomat Talleyrand, who had received the minor orders at Saint-Nicholas, to the church on his death-bed. (Dupanloup subsequently became Bishop of Orléans and a member of the Académie française).Since 1905, the city of Paris, following the law on the separation of Church and State, claims ownership of the church but grants the Roman Catholic Church a free usage right.Before you head to Paris, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Paris trip builder site , to make sure you see all that Paris has to offer, including Saint-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet.

The facade of this Catholic temple is relatively modern, 1934, but originally the church dates from the thirteenth century, where the hand of Jacques Lemercier stands out. There are some magnificent paintings by Nicolas Coypel and Jean Baptiste Camille Corot. A church therefore to include in your visit. It is spacious and has a certain Renaissance Italian touch, discreet but beautiful.
