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.

We found this church literally across the plaza from the Pompideau Center Inside it was not crowded. It is an active church so you do need to be mindful that there are services that go on. Smaller than the cavernous Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur,...More

I stumbled upon this church as it is in a side street very near the Pompidou Centre. OK, it is secondary attraction in Paris, but well worth a visit if you're passing. This summer (2016) is doing free classical music concerts on certain evenings.

This beautiful church has a dusty and forgotten air, and certainly lacks the money that keeps its near neighbour Notre Dame going, but it is obviously well used and well-loved by its own community. Right by the Pompidou Centre and the local shops, with beggars...More

Sorry for the late post. I visited July 2014. It's a very old gothic church which is under renovations. It looks like many of the old churches in Paris. The organ is large and magnificent. My highlight of my visit was sewing a small patch...More

This small gothic church is in the La Marais distrcit. From the windows of the Pompidou Center you can see it. It is a hidden gem. We got in just by chance, after visiting Pompidou Center.

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
