Overview

Once set up in the palace of the Louvre, the royal family Valois (who ruled France between the 14th and 16th Century) chose Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois as the church of the monarchy. After the French Revolution, the building lost its prestige since it was used to store fodder. Today, visitors can admire its 12th Century roman tower and its stained-glass windows, which were restored in the 15th Century. The portal, choir and the Virgin's chapel date from the 13th Century.
