Consecrated in 1857, la Basilique Sainte-Clotilde is most recognisable by its 69-metre twin Gothic towers. The Gothic Revival basilica was designed by the German-born architect Franz Christian Gau, who unfortunately died before its completion. The work was subsequently completed by the architect Théodore Ballu, who designed numerous other churches in Paris, including Eglise de la Sainte-Trinité. The basilica is located in a quiet neighbourhood in the 7th arrondissement, near Saint Germain-des-Près, overlooking a pretty park.
