Saint Eustache is a very famous cathedral in Paris. This church has a history of more than 500 years. There are traces of historical recording on the walls of the church, and the interior of the church is also magnificent. There are many exquisite murals and stained glass, which are very sacred and solemn.
It’s a very beautiful church, but the reputation is not big, so not many people visit it. The history is a very long church. The exterior structure is very special, and the interior decoration is also quite gorgeous.
This Gothic church is located in the restored Les Halles area of Paris. It is smaller than Notre Dame, but brighter than the famous cathedral, and there is no crowd. The windows are decorated with colorful stained glass, and gorgeous brass wall lamps and chandeliers add gilded details. The wood decorating the pipe organ and the carved pulpit is very beautiful and rich in color, forming a sharp contrast with the large stone pillars and floor. The church has an impressive history-Louis XIV received his first communion here, and Mozart chose the church to attend his mother's funeral. In the eclectic art collection, there is a painting by Rubens, next to it is a triptych by Keith Haring. St. Eustache is a very lovely place, especially in the sunny afternoon. Don't miss the giant sculpture "L"Ecoute" near the entrance.
X marks this spot and it never erodes! The first time you spot this 'X' on the wall you’ll notice them popping up over the city. It’s an 'X's that mark the spot but also there’s 'O's too, making a game of O-X-O or tic-tac-toe. At this particular spot I really see the 'X' as having a harmoniously link with the design of the steel balcony. A sympathetic design feature in-keeping with the architecture, in-tune with the concrete landscape as if intended as part of the architects original plan. The artist is De ZeeR's Tic Tac Toe whose designs feature in the Agnes B. boutique near Saint-Eustache.
In the historic location of Les Halles on the popular pedestrian street rue Montorgueil lies Marché Saint-Eustache-Les-Halles (a mouthful, I know)! The market is not so big (there's usually around 20ish stalls) and it is only open on Thursday's and Sunday's. Like other markets there's a selection of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, wine sellers, French cheese, butchers etc... Even if you're not here for the food, it is worth coming for the location and taking a stroll around, or sitting down at a cafe and people watching.
Pleasant outdoor market in the shadows of Saint Eustache. Open on Sundays. Features a variety of fresh produce / seafood and prepared dishes.
