For the 38th edition of European Heritage Days, go and visit the Church of Saint-Laurent in Paris 10th arrondissement! Made of flamboyant gothic style, this church set boulevard Magenta is one to be seen. And yet, not many Parisians have visited it. Let us make the most of European Heritage Days since they are made for this! And, the Church of Saint-Laurent has prepared a fantastic program for September 18 and 19, 2021, so, save your afternoon from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Discovering the hidden treasures in town is the very purpose of the European Heritage Days. And visiting the Church of Saint-Laurent is a lovely family-outing to schedule. And of course, it is free of charge!
European Heritage Days 2021 at the Church of Saint-Laurent, program:
Follow the steps of Saint-Laurent, Abbot Domnole, Saint Geneviève, Saint Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac.
In the 6th century, there used to be a monastery where the current church now stands. Then rebuilt in the 15th century, the church attracts many parishioners including Saint Vincent de Paul, and Saint Louise de Marillac in the 17th century. Together, they create the Company of the Daughters of Charity that settles across the church, where Saint Louise is buried in 1660 (her grave stayed there until 1755).
In 1712, the axial chapel is built by the church, and dedicated to Notre-Dame des Malades. The Church of Saint-Laurent keeps on improving the 21st century with ceramics, paintings and installations by several contemporary artists. In 2005, a Stations of the Cross is set up.
Meet on September 18 and 19, 2021 for an afternoon likely to make you see the neighborhood in a spiritual light!
