The church of St Eustache is located in the area of "Les Halles" in the center of the city. Houses and shops lean against the north and east wall. The entrance right now is still on the south side but renovations are taking place on the west side in order to make that the principal entrance. It's a very active... More

Don t go there on purpose, but if you are taking a walk in the evening nearby, just make a little detour to see it. Very Paris...

Go Sunday at 5:30 for the organ concert. One of the oldest in the world. Stay for Mass. It's on the pilgrimage route of St. Jacques de Compostelle look for scallop shells.

Impressive medieval church. It is not so popular but if you are in Paris don't miss to visit it. I can compare it with Notre Dam and it is even more impressive. My only complaint is that one can't buy CD with organ music played on church organ which are the oldest and the biggest in Paris.

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
