St-Etienne-du-Mont contains the shrine of St. Genevieve's remains, the patron saint of Paris.

Genevieve protected Paris from the barbarians and was buried in an early church located on this area in 512, place which soon after her death became an important pilgrimage destination for Christians.

The current reliquary contains only a few fingers and bones, due to the fact that during the French Revolution, the remains of the Saint were burned.
