Église Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois


Back when the Louvre was still a royal palace (Palais du Louvre), Église Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois was its church.  The impressive and unique bell tower dates from the 12th century and was the only Romanesque survival.  It was later transformed to the Gothic style in the 19th century.


It does enjoy a lofty view of the Louvre
