Overview

Saint Geneviève herself was born in Nanterre around the year 420, and grew up in the town. Legend tells of miracles she performed here, including curing her mother of blindness with well water (the well is also an important part of the religious complex), and the crypt of the chapel is said to have once been the cellar of her house. A new church was designed and constructed around the remains of the centuries-old building during the first half of the 20th Century, and the parts of the structure were again rebuilt in 1972.
