This church regularly presents performances by various classical musicians, though it's most noticeable for the crumbling ruin wall (see pic). It's located in the Latin Quarter and the streets all around it are really small, sort of village style streets worth taking a stroll around.

We attended a wonderful piano concert by Pianist Nitto in St Julien Le Pauvre church. Perfect setting for Chopin and Gershwin like I have never heard it played before. Well worth the 23 euros.
