Commissioned by Louis XIII and completed by 1641, St Paul and St Louis is one of the oldest examples of Jesuit architecture in Paris. It is heavily baroque and classically inspired. The church also served as a 'Temple of Reason' during the Revolution.

so Baroque! this facade gives you no hint of what's inside
clock close up

best holy water container ever?

195ft dome!

over the altar

this is the stained glass style-small and delicate, emphasis on light

they didn't skimp on the organ either
