Paris and the Church of Saint-Laurent

A first church of Saint-Laurent was built in the sixth century. It was destroyed in the ninth century by the Normans. The current church dates back to the fifteenth century and was built in a flamboyant Gothic style. The west facade dates from the nineteenth century, when it was rebuilt on the order of Baron Haussmann as part of the urban renewal of the center of Paris.
