What people are saying:

The Church of Saint-Germain-Auxerre, commonly known as the Louvre Church or the Louvre Cathedral, is located behind the Louvre Museum; of course, it can also be said to be located in front of the Louvre. It depends on which direction the Louvre is viewed from; if it is of Chinese origin If the pyramid-shaped glass building designed by Bei Luming is regarded as the front of the Louvre, the church is behind the Louvre, separated by a wide square and avenue. The address of the Church of Saint-Germain-Auxerre: 2 Place du Louvre, 75001 Paris. The church has a long history, about 300 years. It was built in 1683 and was built by Francois Le Mescher in accordance with Charles Lebrand’s design drawings. Historically, it was the chapel of the kings of France, also known as the Eglise Saint-Germain-Auxerre Church. For tourists, its porches, railings, rose windows, and reliefs are features of architectural decoration and are worth seeing. Comparing the church buildings I have seen, I feel that its architectural decoration is more comprehensive. I think this church has undergone a lot of renovations many times, and compounded many elements, such as Renaissance, Gothic and so on. I usually like compound style and diversity, especially in the field of literary and artistic thought. For extreme, exclusive, one-sentence, compulsory worship, I'm afraid to avoid it, and politely say we stay away. Think of the ancestor religious guide: harsher government is fierce than tiger. In history, in fact, what is really stronger than the tiger is not a single harsh government. What is stronger than the tiger is the idea of "Family World", that is, the so-called "Putian, can it be the king's soil; the coast of the earth, can it be the king's court".
