This Jesuit church has something of interest for all of the traditional visitors of Paris: the history buff, the architecture aficionado, and the art lover. From the time that Louis XIII laid the first stone in 1627, until 1762 when the Jesuits were expelled from France, this church was a prominent symbol of the Jesuit influence. In the period of the Revolution, most of the church's treasures were taken; however some remain, most notably Delacroix's "Christ in the Garden of Olives." If artwork is not what you are in search of, the church's 195-ft dome (forerunner to those of the Invalides and the Sorbonne) should provide a sense of awe, and the Roman-style nave will certainly provide a unique connection with times of old.

Rating: Very Good. Some light corner bending and aging.
