The Saint-Jean-Baptiste church in Belleville is one of
the first churches of neo-gothic architecture built in
Paris. It was built between 1854 and 1859 by Jean-
Baptiste-Antoine Lassus (1807-1857), one of the first
architects of the neo-gothic style in the mid-19th
century in France.. This church is composed of a
nave of five bays with two collateral and eight lateral
chapels, a transept, a choir with a span in the
extension of the nave, an ambulatory giving access
to seven chapels, two sacristys and two steeples
surmounted with arrows.
Masses with organ
Saturday 6:30 p.m.;
Sunday 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
The Great Organ is made by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in
1863. Major alterations were acrried out in 1960 by
Roethinger and in 1976 by Beuchet-Debierre. In 2003,
Dargassies restored the organ towards its former state.
The Choir Organ is built by Antoine-Louis Suret in 1859
and still in its original state.
