Saint Etienne Du Mont - Review
Paris is filled with cathedrals and churches. Some of the important ones are Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle. Among the crowd of world renowned cathedrals, Saint Etienne du Mont has managed to grab the limelight. It is the brilliance of its architecture that keeps its visitors in awe of it. This beautiful building was built between 1492 and 1655. This gothic and renaissance styled church still houses the rood screen that dates back to 1535. Check out the stones from St-Geneviève’s sarcophagus that are held in the intricate shrine at the church.
Some of the highlighted features of this church are:
- The ornate tomb of Ste Genevieve.
- The tomb of Jean Racine and Blaise Pascal.
- The oldest pipe organ case (made in 1631)
- A baroque pulpit
- Series of stained glass windows that dates back to the 16th century.

Saint Etienne Du Mont, Paris Reviews
Beautiful church in a very marvelous neighborhood in Paris. Really enjoyed my time here and in the area. Check when you are going though because it can be closed, but the outside is a worthy sight on its own.
My favorite church ever. So much light... The wall are so clear, this fact makes it one of the most rare and unique churches.
If you have watched midnight in Paris, you definitely want to see this! My favorite stairs in Paris
Saint-Étienne-du-Mon is less famous than the Cathedral Notre-Dame of Paris or the Basilica Le Sacré-Coeur, but it is very interesting to visit.
This cathedral is so gorgeous! Breathtaking white interiors are carved in such a way, they reminded me of the fairy-tale castles. We were lucky to be there during the organ playing, so the atmosphere was unique. Also you can find the tomb of Saint Genevieve, the keeper of Paris, in this cathedral.
