Description

One of the most beautiful and historically significant churches in France, the L'eglise St Etienne du Mont is the final resting place of St Genevieve (c.420–c.500), Blaise Pascal, and Jean Racine. Its construction began in 1492 and wasn't completed until years later. Inside, you will find fine crastmanship in the form of stone sculpture, wood carvings, and remarkable stained-glass designs. The architecture of the church is very extravagant, with large domed spaces lit by high windows, and long spirraling stone staircases.
