L’église Saint-Paul Saint François-Xavier peut être considéré comme l’un des chefs-d’œuvre de l’architecture classique pour la France comme pour Bordeaux. Avec sa longueur de 45 mètres et sa largeur de près de 19 mètres, l’église est l’un des plus grands édifices construits en France par les jésuites.

Sa conception et son style se rattachent au courant architectural baroque. L’intérieur impressionne par ses proportions harmonieuses, sa sobriété architecturale et sa richesse décorative.

Découvrez l'église Saint-Paul-Saint-François-Xavier, sa sacristie, le jardin d'où vous verrez la tour Montaigne et la cour de la Mairerie.

About the location

Église Saint-Paul / Saint-François-Xavier
20 rue des Ayres, 33000 Bordeaux
  • Gironde
  • Nouvelle-Aquitaine
In 1662, the Jesuits of Bordeaux had the church of Saint-Paul built from 1662 to 1673 on the site of the Mairerie. On May 22, 1676, it was consecrated to Saint Francis Xavier by Monsignor Henri de Béthune, then archbishop of Bordeaux. The nave has five vaulted bays of edges, the side chapels communicate with each other and the tribune surmounts the entrance. The choir is decorated with a remarkable high altar with glory and baldachin, it is a group sculpted in marble by William II Coustou between 1741 and 1748.
In 1992, the Dominican brothers, present in Bordeaux since 1221, settled in rue des Ayres and Saint-Paul became their church. In the same year, the church was inscribed with the title of Historical Monuments and was classified in September 1997.
