My favorite church in Paris. I can't really say why, maybe it is because it is that different from all other churches in Paris, maybe because it is peaceful unlike most of the other churches, maybe because I had the opportunity to hear its organ in one of my visits. In any case, it is totally recommended to visit it... More

St Eustache is a place of superlatives, filled with historical events and important personages . For example, its famous organ has 8000 pipes and is purported to be the largest in France. The church is home to several impressive paintings by Rubens. Built between the 16th and 17th centuries, desecrated during the French revolution and re- built since then ,... More

Every Sunday at 5:30 pm. there is a free organ concert at Saint Eustache church on 2 Impasse Saint Eustache. A variety of composers are highlighted each time. Bach was the selected piece the evening my friend and I attended. What a nice way to sit and wonder and listen to various music. A nice addition was the art exhibit... More

Book recommended as top choice. Although it's a lovely old cathedral, it's highly deteriorated and feels abandoned.

We were wandering around the Pompidu centre area and found this cathedral by accident. It was amazing. Not as ornate and flashy as Notre Dame but was a more heart-felt experience. My favorite cathedral of Paris!

Our hotel was very close to St-Eustache and we passed by it every day on our way to eat on Rue Montorgueil. Most evenings it was closed by the time we went to supper but one night it was open and there was a choir of angels inside singing...so we entered, heard a most wonderful concert for free, and toured...

Love this huge quite church next to bustling Les Halles. On a Sunday morning, it was empty. It is very old, and not restored like other churches in Paris.

This is an underrated site that is an architectural gem. The history and the art work from Ruebens to Keith Haring make this a must see

There are several very large, very old, very impressive religious structures in Paris. Probably the most famous is the cathedral of Notre Dame; of course; which is very impressive and always packed with tourists. But only a notch or two below Notre Dame, physically, is st-Eustache, about 10 blocks away, Oddly, bizarrely, it is always virtually empty, forlorn, and forgotten.... More
