Paroisse Saint-Eustache, Paris: 31 reviews and 66 photos

  St Eustache
by fishandchips
 
 

This church was completed in 1637 and really is a wonderful place to visit. The church has been known for organ recitals ever since Liszt apparently played here in 1866. There are a number of very good paintings with the most famous painting being Rembrandt's 'The Pilgrimage to Emmaus'. Other claims to fame by association are Madame de Pompadour and Richelieu who were baptized here and Molière's funeral which was held here in 1673.

There's a side entrance on rue Rambuteau.
