Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre, Paris

4.5
Named for Roman Catholic St. Julian of Le Mans and his dedication to helping the poor, Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre represents one of the city's oldest religious buildings. Construction began in the 12th century during the same time as Notre Dame cathedral, but the church was never completely finished. Over the centuries, builders have added to and updated the Gothic structure. However, you can still see some of the oldest religious architecture outside of Notre Dame on a visit here. The church still operates, serving the Greek Melkite Catholic community. Use our Paris route planner to arrange your visit to Paroisse Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre and other attractions in Paris.

  • This was a wonderful treat. We heard the pianist Philippe Alegre play the piano for nearly one and a half hours. He had some real show stoppers in his performance. A great activity that I recommend people to engage.
  • I attended a wonderful piano concert of Chopin piano music. Flyers were posted all over St-Michel district and the 'box office' opened 1hr before the show. Great acoustics and lovely Eastern Catholic Rite feel to the church! Beautifully adorned Eastern Style Church, but despite the looks, it is technically is closer to Catholic Church than Orthodox. Was deeded to the Melkite Church in 1800's after being Roman Cathiolic for centuries.
