I've always wondered something about this church: why is there no tower? But I guess this is what makes it more unique and interesting! The church itself is surrounded by attractions, as it is in the centre of Paris (the Chatelet-Les Halles district to be more precise). It's certainly a to do in Paris

Notre Dame might be breathtaking on the outside, but St-Eustache is a favourite of ours from the inside. If you like cathedrals, this one should not be missed.

I was all alone here, a real shame considering the history of this church and its wonderful windows and paintings. If you are in the area, it only takes a few minutes to wander through here. There are excellent signs in many languages explaining what you will see.

This church is very near major tourist attractions like Pompidou, Les Halles and it is alsorelatively close to LaFayette. We we're drawn in by some really interesting music which was played at the moment we passed by.

This is one of my favourite churches in Paris. A grand, beautiful gothic church dating from ~1530-1600 near Les Halles. Although it is a great tourist attraction, it is less crowded and can be better enjoyed. The stained glass is absolutely exquisite, by Soulignac (~1600). The church has with great history as well, for insctance, Richelieu, Moliere were baptised here,... More

For me, the St. Eustache church is more beautiful than its sister, Notre Dame, only it's located in Les Halles instead. It's a bit tarnished in outside appearance, but that's acceptable in this working district. Wonderful murals, gargoyles, Voltaire's tomb & a huge organ - all with minimal tourists and solitude. Pretty special place. Enjoy. ...

Sadly, this church has seen better days - it has fallen into disrepair (a good clean would go a long way!) and it doesn't help that the area around it (Les Halles) is a construction zone! That been said - it is a gothic architectural masterpiece; there are paintings by Rubens in the side chapels (although you wouldn't know it... More

When you're in Paris, particularly with kids who've never been before, there's a tendency I guess to focus on the major attractions It was a pleasant surprise therefore to stumble across St-Eustache We were walking down the street from our hotel up near LOpera towards Notre Dame and there it was! Really impressive presence in essentially a suburban area Not... More

I felt this church is as magnificent as Notre Dame and there were no crowds or lines. It is a beautiful gothic architecture church with a serene center alter and stunning stain glass windows. The outside structure is also very elegant. The church is in need of some repairs and cleaning, but look past this and enjoy this beautiful structure.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
