Eglise Saint Eustache Cathedral In Paris

Eglise Saint Eustache is located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris and when originally built was a church dedicated to Saint Agnes.

However, back in the 16th Century the mayor of Paris, Jean de la Barre, decided that the town square needed to be enlarged and therefore in 1532 work started on Saint Eustache to turn it into a cathedral, yet was stopped during the Religious wars and work did not re-start again until the year 1624 and it was finally completed in the year 1637.

Eglise Saint Eustache Cathedral In Paris

Anyone who loves historical buildings and fabulous architecture will be in their element with the ornate and beautiful structure like the Notre Dame Cathedral and yet it is very distinguishable compared to many churches and other monuments in Paris as it has a variety of architectural styles including a Gothic exterior and interior but a decor in the Renaissance style.

Being around 105 metres in length by around 43 metres in width, the main characteristics of Saint Eustache Cathedral are the many gargoyles on the exterior of the building along with its pillars, arches and mesmerising stained glass windows.

Rich in history, the cathedral is open to the public every day not just for services, but so that you can even visit the tombs of famous people like Cardinal Richelieu and the Marquise de Pompadour.

Concerts are also held at Saint Eustache Cathedral and many of these are free as is a visit to this beautiful church itself.
