ABOUT

History and Fun Facts about the Saint-Honoré d’Eylau Church


Rich with history and culture, the Saint-Honoré d’Eylau Church has even served as the venue for the funeral of the great French couturier Christian Dior — a service that attracted nationwide interest. Where better than this opulent architectural marvel to serve as the final resting space for an icon of fashion and design?
Discover the visual splendour and captivating history of the Saint-Honoré d’Eylau Church, nestled in the heart of Paris’s 16th arrondissement. Initially constructed to serve as a temporary chapel annex to its ancient counterpart, this church remains standing as a veritable hidden gem amongst Paris’s long list of gorgeous chapels and churches.

 

Indulge in the serene, spiritual atmosphere cultivated by this awe-inspiring space. Observant eyes will appreciate the myriad architectural details on offer, including the slender metal pillars that preserve the structure of this unique interior space. Setting this church apart from the crowd is its exquisite Art Deco glass roof, as created by Félix Gaudin with reference to designs by Eugène Grasset and Raphaël Freida. The spellbinding atmosphere of the hushed crypt will charm spectators, having been adapted into an events space over a decade ago. For a change of taste, explore the adjacent chapel of Sainte-Thérèse-de-l’Enfant-Jésus, imbued with all the elegance of Art Deco and adorned with remarkable murals by Alfred Sauvage illustrating the seven sacraments.

 

The soul of this sacred space can only be truly experienced with an in-person visit. Why not go beyond the doors of this historic venue and discover it for yourself? You may just be treated to an evening of magnificent classical music to complement the delightful architecture!
