Beautiful small church

Lovely inside. I wish we could have been there when the organ was playing or the choir singing. Very peaceful and not crowded

You will find this gorgeous church tucked in beside Les Halles - and it is truly worth the visit. The light is beautiful, I visited on a lovely sunny afternoon and felt like I was drifting along the aisles. Look for a fairly modern art piece tucked into a side chapel; it depicts the folks who used to bring their... More

We fell upon this church literally by accident. What I found most impressive Was really impressed with this structure is that it was virtually empty of tourists; we had the whole place literally to ourselves. We spent a good 30 mins walking inside and gasping at the majestic tranquility of the place. It was really awe inspiring and underscores the... More

So, Notre-Dame de Paris was not a pleasant experience. Hordes of visitors, some of them going there merely to check a destination off their list. The next day, I made my way to Saint-Eustache. Half of its exterior was covered for restoration -- not much I can say about that. But its interior was fantastic. The soaring gothic columns, the... More

St. Eustache is a big grand gothic cathedral, most important as the parish church for the Les Halles district. Skip the church and go to the great market street, Rue Montorgueil next door. It's lined with terrific food stalls of all sorts, plus great cafes. At night the side streets are lively with young people going out to dine at... More

This is one of the first real big churches built (1532) in Paris. It's amazingly beautiful, and the organ is incredible, especially if you are there when it plays. It's not a church on many visit plans, but it should. It's being reinstated and repaired since it was neglected over the centuries. But amazing to see....

If the line is too long at Notre Dame, or if you like churches, I would recommend this one to any visitors to Paris. 16th century gem, with impressive stained glass, paintings and memorials. Well worth a visit and close to the shopping mecca of Les Halles.

Considered as the nicest church after Notre Dame, this church is also very old, I think about the 1500 century, and is a gothique church and has Renaissance decorations, big windows, high pillars, and a renaissance Rosaces; inside she is fast 100 m of lenght and many arches; Often there are excellent concerts in this church.

I first saw Saint Eustache church as a backdrop for a movie. I did some research and found a forgotten gem. Saint Eustache church is located in central Paris next to the "Forum Des Halles". The church was originally built in 1532 and restored in 1840. The Church has fallen upon hard times, but a restoration in on the way.... More

The church near to Chatlet-Les Halles is one magnificent building dating back to centuries. It has breathtaking interior architectures of wood and stone.It also houses a huge pipe organ which is occasionally.Not to mention, a truly peacful atmosphere.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood 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.
