Église Saint Augustin


This church of the Second Empire, built between 1860 and 1871 by Victor Baltard, stands above the city landscape.  Saint-Augustin is almost 330 feet long and the dome stands over 260 feet high. The church incorporates several architectural styles, Roman, Gothic, Byzantine and Renaissance, and it is uniquely the first church in Paris to be built around a metal frame.


Although you cannot tell from this perspective, 
the church sits majestically at the convergence of many large boulevards, 
courtesy of Baron  Haussmann,  It is recognizable from a distance for its red cupola.
