Catholic Church of the 11th district of Paris, the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help is one of the five minor basilicas of the capital. Raised as a basilica in 1966, it was built in the late nineteenth century in an elegant Neo-Gothic style.
It has its origins from a modest chapel dedicated to the Sacred Heart and Saint Hippolyte, which soon became too small to receive the services. It is right next to the famous Père-Lachaise cemetery, very popular with tourists passing through Paris.
Although it does not contain much wealth in its interior, it reveals however a beautiful marble lying of Alphonse de Liguori, the creator of the congregation of Redemptorists, and a way of the cross of the nineteenth century. Its simple and elegant lines reflect an architecture full of grace and charm.
