Founded in the 17th century, the Congregation of the Foreign Missions (a society of secular priests), has sought since its creation to establish settlements, mostly in Asia.  The headquarters of the Paris missions is located in a beautiful area between rue de Babylone and rue du Bac in the seventh district and has managed to preserve its amazing park, which is strictly private.

We will visit the museum dedicated to the history of the Foreign Missions, the Church and have a sneak peek at the largest private garden of the city.

Come and discover with our guide Catherine this unusual site !
