“Historically Important”

Cathedrale Saint Louis
Ranked #22 of 93 things to do in Versailles
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We had some time so we went to see it and we were glad we did. It played an important part in the French Revolution since it was where the people of the Etats Généraux marched from Norte Dame in the prelude to the Revolution. I found it very interesting even though the church is austere. (Full disclosure - I am a retired history professor and I really like this stuff).

We saw this on the map and had time to kill. A large and important church in its time. Sadly with no wheelchair access so we all couldn't go in. The inside was v nice but not as good as the church in the centre of town.
We visited the kings veg garden after and saw just how big the Cathedral was from a distance.

During a mid week visit to versailles our hotel was around the corner so we popped in. Not as big as the Versailles Notre dame but still beautiful.

The stained glass windows are impressive but the rest of the building is very plain. The organ was being played which added a bit of atmosphere.

This is not a must visit place. However if you have spare time after the tour of the Versailles Palace and gardens then do visit this cathedral.
We were leaving Versailles on our way back to Paris when we stumbled upon this place. There is a farmers market outside the church on Saturday and we enjoyed shopping for fresh fruits in the farmer's market. The church itself is not too big, but has excellent stained glass windows and statues.

A definite place to enjoy if one has half an hour of free time.
