Commonly called Saint-Eugène, this beautiful church with lots of color and light, was build between 1854 and 1856 by Boileau and Lusson. The facade is a XIIIth century mockup, but the inside is neo-gothic, and the church is the first full-metal one in Paris.
On January 10, 1857, writer Jules Verne married Honorine Viane here. And since 1989, the mass is celebrated in the church both under the Paul VI ritual (that is, in French) and under the St Pius V ritual (in latin, priest turning its back to the faithful).
