Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis Church - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

360 panorama showing the interior of the church of St-Paul-St-Louis in Paris. This interior is light and sumptuous, with a vast dome that soars far above the visitor. This panorama was taken from the junction of the transepts and aisle of the church and the image shows the high altar on a round wooden platform. The picture also shows the pulpit and massive church organ. Inside are numerous statues.

Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis Church - Paris visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis Church' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Paris.

Église St-Paul-St-Louis (Church of St-Paul-St-Louis) in Paris stand on Rue Saint Antoine about half way between the Place de la Bastille and the Hotel de Ville, and just south of the Place des Vosges.

This panoramic picture shows the interior of this Baroque Jesuit church, whose design is based on Il Gesù Church in Rome. Construction began 1627, directed by Louis XIII, and completed in 1641. As seen in the photograph, the interior contains massive Corinthian pillars and heavy ornamentation. The dome of the church is 195 feet high, the fore-runner of the Eglise du Dôme. Though looted during the French Revolution and turned into a 'Temple of Reason', the church remains impressive. The most impressive work of art in the church is the 'Christ in the Garden of Olives' painted by Delacroix in 1827.
