In 1612, Pope Paul V requested Queen Marie de Médicis to accommodate the Order of Discalced Carmelites in Paris. The queen provided lodging for them in the Hôtel de Valles and then built a church on the side of the rue de Vaugirard, then at the southern limits of the city. Construction began in July 1613 and was completed in 1620; the church was consecrated in 1625. It was the first church dedicated to St Joseph.
The high altar was ordered by Chancellor Pierre Séguier in 1633. The carvings were the work of Simon Guillain and François Anguier. The altarpiece was given to the convent of the Discalced Carmelites by Queen Anne of Austria in 1624; it was painted by Quentin Varin and depicts the Presentation in the Temple.
The cupola is embellished with a painting of Elijah on the chariot of fire painted in 1644 by Walthère Damery, a painter of Liège. This was the first painting on a cupola in Paris in the 17th century.

Eglise Saint Joseph des Carmes Reviews
If you can manage a behind the scenes tour, there are great relics there of the French Revolution, including bones a la the Catacombs.
In this place Athos Partos and Aramis first experienced in the Battle of D'artagnan (originally, the place of duel of Athos and D'artagnan. The Careless impulse in the haste of the wounded in the right shoulder of Athos D'aatan on his second day of his arrival in Paris in the House of Mr. De Treville) A. Dumas "It was an abandoned building with broken glasses, surrounded by barren wastelands, in case of necessity serving the same purpose as Pre-O-Claire: There were usually people who were fighting, who could not waste time."
