Histoire de Paris

Couvent et Club des Feuillants
Henri III installe à Paris en 1587 des Cisterciens réformés venus de l’abbaye Notre-Dame de Feuillants, en Languedoc, et confie à Baptiste Androuet du Cerceau la construction de leur couvent. L’église est consacrée en 1608 et sa façade achevée en 1624 par François Mansart. L’entrée monumentale, œuvre de Jules Hardouin-Mansart, terminée en 1676, se situait dans l’axe nord-sud de la place Vendõme et le jardin dessiné par Le Nõtre s’étendait jusqu’au Manège des Tuileries (rue de Rivoli). En 1790, le Club des Feuillants s’installe dans l’église.

Ses membres se dispersent après le 10 août 1792, et l’église devient la buvette des députés des différentes assemblées qui siègent au Manège, jusqu’à la destruction de l’ensemble des bâtiments en 1804.

History of Paris

Convent and Club of Feuillants
Henri III installed Reformed Cistercians from Notre-Dame de Feuillants Abbey, in Languedoc, in Paris in 1587, and entrusted Baptiste Androuet du Cerceau with the construction of their convent. The church was consecrated in 1608 and its facade completed in 1624 by François Mansart. The monumental entrance, the work of Jules Hardouin-Mansart, completed in 1676, was located in the north-south axis of Place Vendõme and the garden designed by Le Nõtre extended as far as the Manège des Tuileries (rue de Rivoli) . In 1790, the Club des Feuillants moved into the church.

Its members dispersed after August 10, 1792, and the church became the refreshment bar for the deputies of the various assemblies who sat at the Manège, until the destruction of all the buildings in 1804.
