Big and not well known

This church right next to Les Halles is huge and very impressive. Not many people find the small entrance - too bad.

Beautiful church, easy to get to by public transport, and the entrance is free. I'd definitely recommend paying a visit.

St-Eustache is surely the only church in the world to contain art works by Peter Paul Rubens and Keith Haring. The height is particularly striking. The church is undergoing renovation, but that has not kept it from hosting musical events. Wander around for a while, check out the building's unusual history, meditate if you like. This is a venue well... More

Very lovely church, but the construction around the area is a bit of a pain. It will be wonderful when they finish.

St.-Eustache is right beside Les Halles so easily accessible. Most people walk by without noticing it. It is not a "spectacular" sight but the interior is very nice. Entrance is free and you're probably walking right by anyway.

Wondeful and symbolic. Located in a broader area of various interests. You can start your route to Montmartre from there.

We found St Eustache by accident and had the place to ourselves. It is an imposing structure. The architecture is a wonder to behold.

This is an amazing church in the 1st arrondissement and my favourite in Paris. It offers free tours in several languages most weekday afternoons. There are no queues. If Gothic architecture is your thing you won't be disappointed. The restoration work on the one side is beautiful and shows how vibrant the colours truely were. There is a lot of... More

St Eustache is immefdiately NW of the huge Les Halles Shopping Labyrinth thats sits over the huge transport hub. Outside the south transept is supported by an elegant soaring symmetrical framework of flying buttresses, the stonework having been cleaned in recent decades. The church was built over the C16th and 17th and the soaring rectilinear columns exude a strong Italian... More

This church is truly impressive and the joy of it is that, unlike Notre Dame, it is not crowded so you can appreciate it more. Many famous people came to the church which was finished in 1632 (it took 100 years to build - can you imagine that now!!) - Louis 14th received communion there, Mozart's mother's funeral was there,...

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.
