After viewing it form the street and taking into account its history, I would have loved to go inside the church and visit it. Unfortunately, that was not possible: I was following the indications to get to the entrance but, finally, the building ended and there was nowhere to get into. That happened three times, so we are so sorre... More

Apparently this church has biggest church organs in France with 1000s pipes. Also entire structure is massive and you really feel small when you stand in the middle. Not so nicly decorated as rival churches like Sacre Coure. .but still impresive.

With the extensive work on the nearby shopping centre this church is a little hard to find, certainly from the Les Halles side. But if you're in the area it's definitely worth a few minutes of your time. Quiet and serene, it has all the hallmarks of the Gothic period, soaring columns et al, plus a maginificent organ. Sadly it... More

I stumbled across this magnificent church on my way to meet friends at a cafe. It has a magical quality, an aura even. There are three stunning rose windows and I counted two Rubens' paintings. Since it's a working parish and not a tourist destination, it showcases work by modern artists, as well, including a rare sculpture by American artist... More

One of the most beautiful churches in Europe. Truly serene and magical. Definitely worth checking out. Please leave a donation, as all the churches are free to enter.

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

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.
