The Eglise St-Germain l'Auxerrois is a beautiful building in the premiere arrondisement at 2 place du Louvre. Completed in the 15th century, the church is steeped in history. Worth visiting!

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
