The small Saint Aventin's church was located near the ramparts, at the end of rue St Aventin, now rue Michelet. It was apparently founded in the 9th century. During the Revolution, its priest Antoine Pierre Fardeau was killed after refusing to honour the new constitution... The church was then used as a protestant temple, to be eventually destroyed in the middle of the 19th century.
