"Église Saint-Eustache - Interior" Paroisse Saint-Eustache Tip by MM212
Paroisse Saint-Eustache, Paris: 31 reviews and 66 photos
The massive interior of Église Saint-Eustache is nearly as impressive as the Notre-Dame de Paris. It measures 105 metres in length by 43 metres in width, and rises to a lofty 33-metre height. It consists of five aisles, flanked by richly decorated side chapels, and harmoniously blends Renaissance and Gothic styles, rarely seen elsewhere. The rib vaulted ceiling is quite remarkable, while the pipe organ is the largest in Paris. The church was consecrated in 1640 after just over a century of construction work, and it became the royal chapel thereafter. It was the site of royal and noble baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
