Truly vast and impressive if a little dirty and in need of a good clean, St Eustache is an amazing church. A real highlight is the amazing organ at the west end - vast and incredible and probably worth a trip to the building in itself (even for non musicians). It's also fascinating to see one of the console for... More

Very old church build originally in 1200. Rebuild in 1500 during 1 century. One of the biggest orgue in France can be found in this church. Richelieu, Moliere and Madame de Pompadour were baptised in this church where also Mozart came to cry at his mother's funerals. Louis XIV, le roi soleil had his first communion in here.

We came across this beautiful church by accident, and we are so glad we did. Beautiful stained glass windows and impressive architecture. A very peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of Paris.

This may be one of the largest and most beautiful of the churches in Paris. It is Les Halles Subway station and is famous not only for its amazing arches and natural lighting, but cotains great works of art as well as a memorial to the original Les Halles, which used to be the great open air farmers market.

An amazing church. I love it much more than Notre Dame and it breaks my heart that it's in such bad condition. Still you can see that it was an absolute masterpiece. A must visit.

Located next to Les Halles, the church is considered a beautiful example of Gothic architecture. Several historical people has been baptized, or received their last rituals there.

I came to this church by chance. I got lost but found this place. It was 15 minutes before the Sunday Mass begun, and the holy organ played Bach (I guess). I don't know why I just cried with a very very good feeling I cannot explain. I've listened to church organs elsewhere but never felt the same. It's not... More

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

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.
