Basilique Ste. Clotilde

Map
23 bis Rue Las Cases, Solférino, Paris, 6e, France

The twin spires of the Basilique Ste. Clotilde once marked it as the most famous and oft-visited church of 19th-century Paris. Though the construction of Basilique Ste. Clotilde began in 1833, the architecture is decidedly Neo-Gothic, and its spires in particular are considered a hallmark of the Revivalist style. Construction on the church was completed in 1857, and Pope Leo XIII declared it a minor basilica a year later. Visitors today should note the highly detailed, sculptured relief over the central portal, the brilliant rose window in the ceiling, and the Aristide Cavaille-Coll organ, on which a number of organiste titulaire were composed.
