The Cathedral of Saint-Eustache

If you say “cathedral” and “Paris” in the same sentence, you will most likely think of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. But Paris is home to many cathedrals, and one of the most beautiful is Saint-Eustache. It was constructed from 1532 to 1640, with towering gothic arches, walls of light, and the largest organ in Paris. I hope you enjoy this visit to Saint-Eustache.

      1. I had no idea the place existed and so close to the Louvre! We could have walked there. I’m sorry we missed it. I can see how it would be special without all the crowds of a Notre Dame.
