Enjoying the reputation of being the most pivotal Catholic church constructed during Louis-Philippe's rule, St Vincent De Paul dates back to 1844. Jacob Ignaz Hittorf, a German architect, designed the impressive edifice, which was dedicated in 1729 by Pope Benedict VIII.
Hittorf successfully combined the Christian style five-aisled basilica form with Greek and Roman elements, which can be seen in the church's Corinthian and Ionic columns and the Roman triumphal arch.
Remarkable exterior features along with a jaw-dropping interior make the church a tourist attraction. On the altar sits a sculpture created by Francois Rude and the Procession of the Saints fresco made by Hippolyte Flandrin. The church's spectacular facade resembles an ancient Greek temple.
This magnificent church is a must-see for history buffs yet remains largely unknown by the masses. The Church of Saint Vincent De Paul is positioned within a short distance of one of the French capital's principal railway stations, Gare du Nord, and is easy to reach by hire car.
At the city's major Charles de Gaulle International Airport you'll find several car rental companies as well other choices spread across the cosmopolitan metropolis. However, pre-booking St Vincent De Paul car rental through the internet will get you the cheapest rate.
