Built in the Jesuit style between 1635 and 1642, Eglise de la Sorbonne was designed by Lemercier.

On the cupola are painted Richelieu's coat of arms and angels.

Inside the church, that at the time of our visit was closed for restoration works, is the tomb of Cardinal Richelieu, made of white marble carved by Girardon.

Directions: M: Cluny - La Sorbonne (line 10)
