The Church of St. Louis of the French is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, St. Denis the Areopagite and St. Louis IX, king of France. The church was design by the master Giacomo della Porta and is quite beautiful to look. It offers a spiritual serenity quite unmatched.

San Luigi dei Francesi

The Church of St. Louis of the French is a Roman Catholic church in Rome, not far from Piazza Navona. The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, to St. Denis the Areopagite and St. Louis IX, king of France. The church was designed by Giacomo della Porta and built by Domenico Fontana between 1518 and 1589, and completed through the personal intervention of Catherine de' Medici, who donated to it some property in the area. It is the national church in Rome of France. It is a titular church. The current Cardinal-Priest of the Titulus S. Ludovici Francorum de Urbe is André Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris.
