Facts

  • The church site has been home to a church since the 12th Century. The church was originally dedicated to St. Agnes.
  • The current church building on the site was begun in 1532 under Jean de la Barre, the mayor of Paris. It was meant to be the focal point of the city, and also included the expansion of the square around the church.
  • Work on the cathedral halted sometime in the second half of the 16th Century due to religious wars, and did not begin again until 1624.
  • The exterior of the church is done in a Gothic style, but the interior is in a Renaissance Revival style.
  • The height of the nave of the church soars to a height of 33.46 meters (109.78 feet).
  • Molière, Cardinal Richelieu, and the Marquise de Pompadour are buried in the church.
