Reviews

A treat
We had the good fortune of attending an evening chamber music concert here and it was just such a treat.

Church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Very beautiful church and allegedly the oldest one of Paris. This gem is not be missed when visiting Paris.

We both loved the show

My girlfriend and I both loved the show. The planning was excellent, they went after the performance of Vivaldi's four seasons on the work and played one more again. The musicians played with passion. The acoustics were fantastic and in no way inferior to a concert hall. Recommended.

Excellent musicians and choice of music.

Saint-Germain-des-Prés Church



At the time of its initiation in the 6th century, this church, now in the dead center of Paris, was in the meadowy outskirts of the city. Despite various fires throughout the centuries that destroyed portions of the abbey and grounds, the church itself still stands, remaining one of the oldest churches in all of France. It did not, however, entirely escape tumultuous times, victim to everything from viking sieges to gunpowder explosions, it's a wonder the halls are still standing at all!

 

From an architectural perspective, the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Church remains one of the very first edifices built in Gothic style, serving as an inspiration for thousands more to come. A historic monument entirely its own, over the years the halls of this church have been graced by kings, saints, and popes. You can even find the tomb of French philosopher René Descartes!
