a masterpiece of Gothic art

Located next to Les Halles, the church is considered a beautiful example of Gothic architecture. Several historical people has been baptized, or received their last rituals there.

I came to this church by chance. I got lost but found this place. It was 15 minutes before the Sunday Mass begun, and the holy organ played Bach (I guess). I don't know why I just cried with a very very good feeling I cannot explain. I've listened to church organs elsewhere but never felt the same. It's not... More

The church of St Eustache is located in the area of "Les Halles" in the center of the city. Houses and shops lean against the north and east wall. The entrance right now is still on the south side but renovations are taking place on the west side in order to make that the principal entrance. It's a very active... More

Go Sunday at 5:30 for the organ concert. One of the oldest in the world. Stay for Mass. It's on the pilgrimage route of St. Jacques de Compostelle look for scallop shells.

Impressive medieval church. It is not so popular but if you are in Paris don't miss to visit it. I can compare it with Notre Dam and it is even more impressive. My only complaint is that one can't buy CD with organ music played on church organ which are the oldest and the biggest in Paris.

When I was last in Paria I happened upon this Cathedral hosting Jean Gallou's organ master class for the great upcoming organists in Europe. It went on all day, all week in early August. Should you love the king of instruments and beautiful surroundings, spend some time here. The classes took a lunch break and so did I.....Pied au Cochon... More

The Gothic/Renaissance church of St-Eustache is located in Les Halles and was built between 1532 and 1633. At the time it was rivaled only by the Notre-Dame as Louis XIV, Richelieu, Madame de Pompadour and Moliere were baptized here. Moliere also got married in the church and his funeral was held here in 1673. Mozart also choose this location for... More

Quite a spectacle in the day, more so in the night! Sadly viewing angles are restricted as there is a new metro station being built.

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.
