I would recommend this as a must see visit. Beautiful old church set in an interesting history and a very attractive garden.. There are concerts performed many evenings, I m just sorry that I did not get to see one. Highly recommended for a visit.

We walked through the church garden on our way to the Pantheon and saw the exterior of the church. It appeared to be a very old church near the river. We would have stopped in but during services Sunday morning.

It is now a venue for concerts. You can find the oldest "resident" of Paris growing in front of the church. It is Robinier...an acacia tree named after the guy who planted it in 1602. It has seen better days but then remember it is...More

An evening of Chopin and Liszt in this beautiful church. Thank you to Herbert du Plessis and the very friendly staff. Well worth the entrance fee of €23. Would definitely attend another concert in future.

As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
