    Still under construction due to fire damage. Famous sites in Paris. The area direct south on the other side of the street is the famous Latin quarter of Paris. I hope they could open in 2024 since I only stay in paris until 2024

    We walked to Montemartre, where the Basilica of Sacred Heart is situated. This was on a Sunday, so it a little bit of a line, but this moved fairly quickly at 10 am. Later, the lineup was much longer. Luckily, my husband had done some research, and you are able to pay to walk the 292 stairs to the top. Here, you have amazing views across Paris. This was all very impressive. It was built back in 1885. Amazing.

    I bought a Paris Museum Pass, so to enjoy visiting several of my favorite museums and monuments without lining up to purchase entrance ticket.

    There are two levels in the Saint Chapelle. The upper level is most beautiful with coloured glasses telling many stories, but it can be challenging for some visitors of weaker heart to reach these level. However, there are about 12 chairs on the upper floor for visitors-in-need to sit for a little while after ascending the stairs.

    Visitors do not need to pay for the audio if they could read, because there are big illustration cards, available for different language speakers to read about the stories presented on the glasses.

    Enjoy the exploration journey!

    The construction works are still ongoing an there is no entry into the interior but there are a lot of information of the restoration works and history about the cathedral scattered around the front of the cathedral. It is free to stop by and appreciate the exterior. The side and back are unfortunately blocked off at the time of visit.

    I used another tour but the visit to the Pantheon was very interesting. Many of the people whose crypt were in the Pantheon were names that I did not recognize. I took lots of pictures and now I have a lot of homework to learn about who the people were.

    Beautiful church that hosts a variety of small classical concerts. We were fortunate enough to be able to attend a rendition of Vivaldi. Would highly recommend.

    Wow! Who new? Wonderful church, overlooked by most, close to the Sorbonne and literally next-door to the Pantheon. The most amazing stained-glass and it houses the Tomb of St. Genevieve, put here at the request of King Clovis where he originally was buried (now elsewhere). So much to see and truly a hidden gem. Oh yes, Genevieve is the Patron Saint of Paris.

    Lesser known church despite being the third largest in Paris. Great example of Baroque architecture. Free entry, take your time, but be respectful as it remains an active church.

    The height of the interior of this gothic cathedral is impressive. We sat for a while to admire it all. They have installed a light show here, so that is something to come back to. This has been the parish church for the market area.

    The church was stunningly beautiful but the memorial to the 11,000 transported from this church to Auschwitz by the Nazis broke my heart in two. I read the names of the children represented her, between the ages of 18 mo. and the age of six, to remember them and all who died.

    My twin brother Stephen and I were enjoying beers sat outside a cafe bar on Place Du Tertre and as a lovely backdrop was the beautiful Eglise Saint Pierre De Montmartre .
    Eglise Saint Pierre De Montmartre is the 2nd oldest church in Paris ,the oldest is Abbey De Saint Germain Des Pres ,Eglise Saint Pierre De Montmartre dates from 1133 and what we see today is all that remains of the church that was once part of an abbey complex ,the rest being destroyed during the French Revolution ,it's an evocative looking church ,so photogenic and very popular with tourists ,it's a church to most definitely check out if you're in this area of Montmartre and found along Rue Du Mont Cenis.

    Not a very large cathedral - it is the soldiers' church, for the retired soldiers who live in the Invalides. Impressive display of military flags and banners. Like other displays in the Army Museum in the Invalides, there are explanations provided in English.

    A significant church- buy very sad to see many large stained glass windows empty and blank. You should not miss the amazing art work all around the church. Greatly appreciated the explanations of many of the art in the various chapels. I was delighted to be able to see the marvelous sculpture by Louis Duveau of the Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. And many others: the Pieta, etc.
    Plasters on Jesus betrayed by Judas, the stations of the cross, were precious.
    Their sound system is much appreciated- voices very clear and singing most joyous. Amazing organ! A must visit if you are in the neighbourhood.

    One of Paris' oldest churches, Saint Julien Le Pauvre is now a place of worship for Greek Catholics. Step inside its interior and you're almost transported east, with beautiful icons glowing in the dim light.
