This is a marvellous cathedral and should be given far moor credit as one of Paris' jewels and place of interest. It is a breath-taking piece of beautiful architecture with a profound sense of peace and spirit. Please go and see this wonderful place.

The church is close to Chatelles Les Halles so it is easy to find. I visited on a day when the organ was not being played. It looks spectacular and probably sounds it to. Next time I am in Paris I must try to hear it. The church has a good range of artwork and windows to admire. It was... More

We went here for a Sunday organ concert on the 12th July 2015, which was 30 minutes of Grigny, Bach, and Franck. The organ was powerful and well-played. The church is attractive and historic: Mozart had his mother's funeral Mass here, Berlioz' Te Deum premiered here, Louis XIV had his first communion here, and many more. Some of the stained... More

This church might not be on the list to be visited. However it is easy to get to as it is very near to the famous Chatelles Les Halles station. It is really ancient and its Gothic structure is impressive.

What a lovely break from the madness of the Marais neighborhood of Paris. This ancient church was built between 1532 and 1632, but the there was religious activity here dating back to the 13th century. St Eustace's is considered a masterpiece of late Gothic architecture. It's stunning inside. It should be on your list of things to see in Paris.... More

Truly vast and impressive if a little dirty and in need of a good clean, St Eustache is an amazing church. A real highlight is the amazing organ at the west end - vast and incredible and probably worth a trip to the building in itself (even for non musicians). It's also fascinating to see one of the console for... More

Very old church build originally in 1200. Rebuild in 1500 during 1 century. One of the biggest orgue in France can be found in this church. Richelieu, Moliere and Madame de Pompadour were baptised in this church where also Mozart came to cry at his mother's funerals. Louis XIV, le roi soleil had his first communion in here.

We came across this beautiful church by accident, and we are so glad we did. Beautiful stained glass windows and impressive architecture. A very peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of Paris.

This may be one of the largest and most beautiful of the churches in Paris. It is Les Halles Subway station and is famous not only for its amazing arches and natural lighting, but cotains great works of art as well as a memorial to the original Les Halles, which used to be the great open air farmers market.

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.
