About the Event

Attend an exceptional concert in the prestigious Church of Saint‐Germain des Prés.
The oldest Romanesque church in Paris,Saint-Germain-des-Prés was founded in the 6th century as an abbey. The church underwent periodic reconstructions, made necessary by 9th century Norman raids, and Revolutionary era fires, until the 19th century. However, the Romanesque lines of the early interior are still recognizable beneath the paint of 19th-century frescoes. The name of the church was also given to its quarter (Saint-Germain-des-Prés Quarter), a vibrant area in Paris’ 6th district, traditionally popular among writers and intellectuals, and the home of Sartre and de Beauvoir's existentialist movement.
