Parisians greatly respect the Church of St. Genevieve. The church preserves the relics of St. Genevieve - the patroness of Paris. Clovis, the first of the kings to adopt the Christian faith, his wife and daughter are buried in the church. Casket with the relics of St. Genevieve's in 1242 was placed under the main altar, it was made of pure silver and covered with gold. The dungeon with arched vaults which was used by Parisians to gather for prayer, during the time of the persecution of Christians, is also situated in the church.

Normans robbed and burned the Abbey and the Church of St. Genevieve's several times - in 846, 884 and 892. The Parisians each time restored the temple, and completely renovated it in the XIII-XIV centuries. Cardinal Laroshfuko decorated the church with marble. Since 1229, there is a tradition to carry a casket with the relics of St. Genevieve during the epidemics of illness and natural disasters through the streets of the city.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
