Eglise de la Sainte-Trinité

Eglise de la Sainte-Trinité

This church is known simply as La Trinité or Sainte-Trinité, built between 1861 and 1867 as part of the beautification and reorganization of Paris by Haussmann. It was designed by the Théodore Ballu taking inspiration from French and Italian Renaissance architecture. Prior to the construction, many significant historical buildings were demolished to make way for the church and surrounding roads.

The façade, with its three porches and gallery above, is topped by a large rose window and two large windows. Rising above these windows is a four-story bell tower with two cupolas at the top.

bon dimanche

«Louis» rarely leaves comments these days (he is usually working on Sundays...), but he rarely misses one of your Sunday church series. He has always been fascinated with church architecture, and Paris abounds in lovely (if rarely attended...) churches. A delightful series, Genie!

Thank you for highlighting Eglise de la Sainte-Trinité. I used to relax and read on the outside benches on the church grounds back in the 1980s when I spent a summer with friends on Rue Mogador.

Bon dimanche! Haven't been around for a while. Just out of hospital and not yet fully recovered.
