St-Eustache is a wonderfully peaceful church and a place to escape from the massive reconstruction of Les Halles outside. It's relatively uncrowded compared to Notre Dame and the Chapel of the Virgin is stunning.

Not one of the more famous churches in Paris, but still it is worth visiting. Terrific architecture and easy access. Definitely worth 30 minutes to stop in.

Once the richest church in Paris, St. Eustache was modeled after the Gothic Notre Dame when building began in 1532. Because it took more than 100 years to complete, the cavernous three story interior is in the Renaissance style with Corinthian columns and semi circular arches. The exterior gothic skeleton has massive flying buttresses and the interior is heavily decorated... More

I visited this cathedral on a weekday in late November. It is located near Les Halles. The cathedral was not crowded at all. The interior has high vaulted ceilings and there were was some signage explaining elements of the church (such as the paintings). It was very peaceful to walk around and take a break from the city hustle and... More

St. Eustache is not that well known, but it's Paris' second largest, and at my opinion most beautiful church. Not as showy and overwhelming as Notre Dame, but also not as overcrowded. It is a calming beauty. I will always come back there for a prayer when I'm in Paris.

Almost every Sunday at 17:30 there is an organ recital at St Eustache. On my last visit to Paris in November I decided to attend and was met by 300 people who were seated around the organ console in the main sanctuary. Yes it had been All Saints Day at the early Mass but this was much later in the... More

Every time I come back to Paris, my first visit is to "my church". I feel like I belong there, to that 1st arrondissement, I call, muy neighbourhood.

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.

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.
