Located between Invalides and Musée d'Orsay, Sainte Cotilde-and-Saint-Valère church was built between 1846 and 1857, first by Christian Gau ( who died in 1853), followed by Théodore Ballu (architect of the Hôtel de Ville and the Trinité church). Its main style is neo-gothic and its characteristic is in its two 69 metres high spires. Inside, the new altar was created by Goudji in 2007. You can also admire the stained-glass windows by the XIXth century glass artist Thibaut, some paintings from Lenepveu, some sculptures from Pradier and Duret, as well as some from Guillaume about life and apparition of Saint Valérie. In 1897, on the anniversary of the 1400 years of Clovis baptism (king between 481 and 511, whose second wife was Saint Clotilde), the Pope Léon XIII made the church a Basilica. The composer César Franck (1859-1890) was the first organist of the church, playing on the famous organ Cavaillé-Coll. Today, and since 1993, it's Jacques Taddei.
