We had spent the day visiting Versailles and saw the church steeple as we were at lunch. After lunch, we walked to the church to visit. It is a beautiful church with very few people in the church. Well worth the visit.

I agree with the other reviewer's, but it's all relative. Not a crazy gorgeous cathedral, we had just seen Notre Dame L'Epine), but we went Sunday after dinner and attended mass (We are Catholic). The sight (evening sun through stained glass), sound (singing by priest & choir), and even smell (incense) made it an awesome experience. We do not speak... More

We walked around the town for a few minutes and loved the views of the church. It stood tall in the middle of the street and gave it all its charm. Well worth stopping by for a few pictures.

Walking around the Saint Louis quartier, you can reach this big church, worth a quick visit (big also inside, perhaps a bit "cold")

Impressive, but not a must-see. The Paris area does not have that many churches of the period, and the chathédrale was built but an archictect of the great Mansart family. But, if that makes it beautiful and impressive, it is not a 5* must-see landmark

Away from the crowds at the palace you can enjoy this historic cathedral. It was a hot day and a nice place to enjoy

Versailles is a sprawling town. L'avenue de Paris leads straight down to the main entrance of the castle, by far the most popular attraction, followed by the right bank of the avenue with its famous market place, Notre Dame Cathedral , L'Espace Richaud, 2 multisalle cinemas, a theatre and the antique district . The less touristic part of town is... More

Regular but nice Cathedral what I found during my stay in Versailles. Went inside just before closing in the Sunday afternoon. Nice place where to hide from hot weather.

If you are staying over, then yes. There is an open plaza with room for the kids to play and a bar/hotel with a high end vintage consignment store all within view of the kids playing in the plaza. So, I wouldn't make a special trip, but if you stay the night in Versailles, hang out here. See the cathedral,... More
