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.

Walking into this beautiful church felt like a walk back several centuries. Beautiful rustic inside. Don't miss the hugh, modern sculpture on the outside.

St Eustache is breathtakingly beautiful. Although many buildings in Paris have a "wow" factor, St. Eustache has this without the hoards of tourists (ironic coming for one, I know), therefore the experience of this can be cherished with some solitude. The scale of this beautiful building is immense. A must for those looking for quiet reflection, calm or inspiration.

This is a wonderful church. My wife's famous relative is buried in this church so we go every time we are in Paris. This last time we went several times because we were staying close by. We went to a Sunday evening free organ concert. You have not experienced the glories of a Gothic Church until you have heard music... More

On our last day in Paris, after having visited at least twenty churches and cathedrals throughout the Czech Republic, Austria and France, we came upon Saint-Eustache purely by chance, while exiting Les Halles. It is splendid. There are no other words which come to mind other than it has replaced Saint-Denis as my favourite!

While others are waiting in long lines to get into Notre Dame Cathedral, head over to St-Eustache in the 1st District just off Rue de Roule. The church is amazing and not crowded. You will see the hugest organ ever and beautiful stained glass windows. Take your time, there will be no rushing here.

As many people have mentioned this medieval church is less visited but it is very accessible since it's in the vibrant Montorgueil area and a few blocks from the Georges Pompidou Center. What would be worthwhile is seeing a concert at night. A few churches host concerts (La Madeleine, La Sainte Chapelle - with the beautiful stained glass windows -... More

You can read many reviews about the history and beauty of this church. I'll add 3 things that we loved. A triptych by Keith Haring is in the church and it is beautiful. It's on the far side from the entry ( off Nelson Mandela Park) and there is a very thoughtful paper write-up about how a triptych from this... More
