    Although this beautiful church was built in the 16C, its structure is mainly Gothic.

    Building began in 1492 and, following numerous delays, was finally finished in 1626.

    The beautiful facade is a work of Claude Guerin and is flanked by a bell tower.

    The decoration of the facade was completely destroyed during the French Revolution, but was reconstructed in 1861.

    I really recommend you to spend a couple of minutes admiring the wonderful facade of the church.
    Is really worth!

    Church close to the Pantheon

    St Etienne

    Just north east of the Pantheon you see a small church in comparision with its neigbour the Pantheon.

    The church has a mixture of architecturial styles. The tower and choir are neogothic and the facade, unique by its three frontons, is built in renaissance-style.

    The building of this church started allready in the 15th century, but is first completed in 1626. The philosopher-scientist Pascal and the writer Racine are buried in this church.

    This church right behind the Pantheon has an awesome interior. Outside and inside, its Renaissance architecture doesn't feel so Parisian. A true must-see.
