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.

This Gothic church stands in contrast to the modern Pompidou center and the Stravinsky fountain. The contrast does it good, as it is intriguing to visit it after exploring the more modern surroundings.

Tucked away in Le Maris, Paris, this beautiful Gothic church has a extraordinary interior, especially the 20' wide dish hanging from the ceiling.

We found this nice church by coincidence. Because it was raining we looked for some place to stand under and attracted by the artwork we entered the building. We were quite impressed how beautiful this church is inside. On the right-hand side is a nice...More

Quiet and peaceful, the church is beautiful and undergoing some renovations. If you're in the area, worth a stop for the art and architecture.

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
