We walked along this church and someone gave us a brochure for a concert in the church. Well, we went inside and enjoyed the concert and of course took some pictures of the church self. It's beautiful inside.

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
