Calling all architecture fans… For the 38th edition of European Heritage Days, the Church of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul welcomes curious people and lovers of art and history for exclusive tours on Sunday September 19, 2021. Built between 1824 and 1844, in an expanding area, by Jacques Ignace Hittorff, the church is named after a man symbolizing the spiritual and apostolic renewal of the 17th century.
With Antique, Greek and Roman-inspired shapes, and the inside inspired by the Byzantine style, the church is famous for its long frieze of Christian saints painted by Hyppolyte Flandrin in the nave, and its Christ Pantocrator by François Edouard Picot on the vault of the choir. A wonderful work of art to admire on the occasion.
For European Heritage Days, you are invited to visit the church on your own or take part in guided tours provided on Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Note tribunes are exceptionally open so you can admire the frieze by Flandrin. After the roof renovation work ended this spring, the access to the terrace is once again possible (15 people maximum) to admire Paris rooftops. The occasion to shot magnificent pictures of the city. Let us go, friends, shall we?
