This place is really a masterpiece of architecture! I wasn't able to get inside because it was closed for re-innovation but for sure its a must visit place!

Nice flower shops on the site, nice farmers market at the right time of the day. The church front steps are currently covered with flowers at the entrance. Gorgeous!

The church is amazing and well worth the trip over. You'll be surprised. The building is like a Greek Temple. The high alter is worth seeing.

We had the great opportunity to hear a group sing sacred music inside here. It was so very special and the building so historic. It's worth a peek inside.

It has a great location, so you will be probably be walking around there sometime, the church on the outside is nice, but once you get inside, it is so much better. Beautifully and richly decorated, with massive marble statues.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
