Saint-Louis-en-l’Île Church


First of all, why such a strange name? If “île” in French means island… does that mean the church is really built on an island? The Île Saint-Louis is indeed a real island on the Seine in the heart of Paris. Five bridges lead to this very pretty and quiet area of Paris: the Pont Saint-Louis, the Pont de la Tournelle, the Pont Louis-Philippe, the Pont Marie, and the Pont de Sully.

 

During your crossing on one of these bridges, while you pass by the quays of Anjou, Orleans, Bourbon, and Bethune, with their oh-so Parisian frontages whose reflections dance on the Seine, you will discover the beautiful, imposing and very well-named church, Saint-Louis-en-l'Île. It is dedicated to Louis IX who reigned in France from 1227 to 1270, who built the Sainte-Chapelle and was canonized as Saint Louis of France.

 

Today, it is possible to come and admire, in this richly historic church, the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, and the magnificent polychrome stained glass windows depicting Saint Louis, along with Blanche of Castille, another great saint. A place that remains a place of worship, but which also plays host to many classical music concerts.
