Saint Paul Saint Louis church Paris contains exquisite art
The church is a hidden wonder of Paris, tucked away in the Marais, one of this city's most vibrant districts. And when you walk into Saint Paul Saint Louis, stop for a moment. You will feel the history of centuries, from the domed ceiling to the light flooding in from the high windows.
The church is world-famous for its organ, now officially named as a national monument in France. It has three different keyboards, restored in recent decades, and, if you're lucky enough to hear it, a sound that soars to fill this extraordinary building.
The great Romantic artist Eugene Delacroix has one of his finest works here. 'Christ in agony on the Mount of Olives' was painted in 1824, to hang where it does now, a luminous piece that every lover of fine art should see.
Outside, the facade is recently restored, leaving you to see it as it was when first presented to Paris.
