St-Jean-Baptiste church

Leïla K.

Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church

This country chapel of the 12th century became officially a Parish in 1203 and was under the responsibility of "Notre Dame de Paris". Along the centuries, her history and stories were tightly linked to the history of the city of "Sceaux" as well as the history of France. For example Colbert, the Minister of Finances of Louis the 14th, left his imprint in this emblematic monument.
Leïla, who knows the treasures and the crisp stories of this building listed as a French historical monument, offers to guide you in this special building and will give you access to the closed part of the building still under renovation
