For many centuries, Paris has been a stronghold of the Catholic Church. As a result, a large number of monumental churches were built in the city, from the 12th-century Notre-Dame to the late 19th-century Sacré-Cœur. During the revolution, most of the churches were severely damaged and many were used as warehouses. Fortunately, the surviving buildings were renovated after the revolution and many of them now boast splendid interior decorations.
Below you find a list of some of the most interesting churches and chapels in central Paris, listed alphabetically.
