Despite its prominent location facing the back colonnade of the Louvre, Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois seems to be skipped by most tourists. This is double astonishing given that the church is a jewel of Gothic architecture, expanded and restored repeatedly over the years since its initial construction in the 12th century. Note that the Gothic tower in front of the Church does not belong to it, but rather to the next door Mairie of the 1er arrondissement - the town hall built in a similar Gothic style.

Address: Place du Louvre, Paris 1er
