Saint Roch Church was built between 1653 and 1754. Diderot, Corneille and Le Nôtre were buried in this church, which has the distinctive feature of being made up of several chapels following one another. The church was partly built by Jacques Lemercier, the architect of the Sorbonne, with the financial participation of John Law, who caused a scandalous bankruptcy at the beginning of the 18th century. The facade has since lost its sculpted decoration. The vicar of the parish, Father Marduel, called upon the painter Jean-Baptiste Pierre to decorate the "Triumphant Virgin" on the dome.
