- This church was constructed in 1871 in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. At the time the quarter was going through a period of tremendous change due to the Haussmann reforms, which created broad rectilineal avenues through the district. Église Saint Augustin's architecture was composed by Baltard, who looked to Roman and Byzantine structures for inspiration. Today the church has a thriving congregation and occasionally hosts classical and choral concerts.
