Beautiful building set in a great area of Paris. It is worth spending a few moments here. It is being refurbished at the moment but it stills enchants.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Half the fun is getting there, so much traffic. Inside is beautiful.

We were just walking along the street and could not believe ours eyes when we seen this beautiful building in front of us. Unfortunately it was getting some form of renovation and we could not go in which was a shame as it's so beautiful.

I walked into this impressive church during a service. If you are in the area, take the time to step onside and take in the sites of this old church.

This is one of the most beautiful churches in Paris, although it doesn't look like one from the outside. Unlike other churches, this one did not have stained glass in its design. However there are a few prominent sculptures inside and amazing painted ceiling to...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
