Located in the historical heart of Paris, the Church of Saint Ephrem with its outstanding acoustics is a regular venue for concerts of classical music. This ancient Latin quarter church was constructed in 1733 in the Corinthian style. It was used by a variety of different faiths until the late 19th Century, when it became a center for Catholic social movements founded by Robert and Albert de Mun. The interior is classically embellished with an impressive collection of paintings.
