☆ Église Saint-Eustache ☆
Built over a century, this church features Gothic and Renaissance influences combined with an 18thcentury classical façade, along with traces of a questionable restoration after 1840..
Nevertheless, Saint-Eustache is truly beautiful and houses treasures like a Rubens painting and a statue of Pigalle..
And it has an impressive celebrity line-up, including the baptism of Richelieu, Molière and Mme de Pompadour, Louis XIV’s first communion, the mariage of Lulli, the funeral of La Fontaine and Mirabeau as well as Colbert, Marivaux and Rameau, who found their final resting places here. It was even a “Temple of Agriculture” between 1797 and 1803!!
