The beautiful church of Saint-Germain-des-Pres is the oldest in Paris.

Today, from the old Romanesque church from 11 C with three tall bell towers, only one remained.

The interior of the church is not as big as we would expect, due to the fact that the church was intended to be monastery chapel and not parish church.

Among the things we can admire inside are: St Symphorian's Chapel with the tomb of St Germanus, the tomb of John Casimir, King of Poland and Mausoleum of James Douglas.
