Though I've been coming to Paris for decades, I saw this huge stone church for the first time during a recent walk through the Latin Quarter. The dark-ochre structure dominates the area by rue des Bernardins and rue Monge. It has minimal exterior decoration and...More

Only a 3 minute walk away, this is a much smaller church than Notre Dame, but still has a gothic feel to it. We were the only ones in there, except for a handful of worshippers, scattered throughout, who were praying. We were quiet as...More

This is my favorite church in Paris! I love the Traditional Latin Mass, and no where as much as in Saint Nicolas du Chardonnet. Check their website for "Annonces de la semaine" (weekly announcements) to get the Mass times and other events. If there is...More

St. Nicolas du Chardonnet is a beautiful church. Easily accessible by foot (when you are right in the center of Paris), bus or the métro (subway). Dress codes include business attire for men and for women, wear a skirt and a head covering (e.g. scarf...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
