Day 19 Paris – Saint-Étienne-du-Mont

Place Sainte-Geneviève

I found myself at Place Sainte-Geneviève with Saint-Étienne-du-Mont

 

Saint-Étienne-du-Mont

It was open and free to go inside, so I decided to go in and have a look around. This is a roman catholic church built in the 1500’s in the French Gothic and Renaissance styles.

The ceiling reminded me of all the other gothic churches I’ve been in during my travels.

The tomb of St Geneviève (patron saint of Paris) is in the church. I must admit, I find these things a bit creepy.

To see what else I did on Day 19, please check out this post.
