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,...

If you like gothic churches, this place is amazing. Notre Dame is crowded and over rated. I stayed right beside this place and was in twice. The largest number of people I saw, was 7!! Has the largest pipe organ in France. Famous artwork by Rubens, Pigalle and Keith Haring. Scaramouche is interred here (I almost started singing Bohemian Rhapsody!!)... More

This church is only halfway restauré at this point, so besides the obvious architectural and cultural interest, it is quite stunning to observe the difference! Well know people are buried there or have had important sacrements throughout history.

This is a very big church in a very lively part of Paris, with the Halles shopping right across and the pedestrian rue Montorgueil around the corner. I stayed for the mass, it was lovely.

Very few people were inside with us, so we could wander leisurely. It is quite pretty but, after a while, Paris cathedrals start to look similar, and vagrants were sleeping in the pews of this one (better than begging outside). While we visited, a crew was setting up for a big performance.

St-Eustache is beautiful--I actually enjoyed it more than Notre Dame (and no lines, at least not on a Saturday). Bring your camera. I'd love to come back for a concert. Make sure to explore the Marais neighbourhood while you're there--great area.

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.
