This monument is a perfect example of Parisian Gothic architecture. Although the 50-meter (164-foot) high tower is all that remains of Saint-Jacques-La-Boucherie church (which was built in the 16th Century and destroyed just after the French Revolution), it's still an impressive sight. At the time, scientist and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) carried out important atmospheric pressure experiments here. His statue and the addition of a small meteorological station in a part of the tower honor his memory. Call +33 8 3668 3112 for details.
La primera iglesia de Saint-Gervais Saint-Protais fue construida en el siglo VI en el distrito de Marais de París. La construcción del edificio que se ve en la actualidad comenzó en 1494 y llevó unos 150 años. Por consiguiente, es una de las parroquias más antiguas de la margen derecha del Sena. Si bien el estilo es definitivamente gótico, la creación de la fachada fue inspirada por el clasicismo francés, y las obras finalizaron en 1621. La fachada tiene una característica distintiva: cuenta con tres columnas de estilo griegas. También encontrarán dos relojes de sol: uno hecho con numerales romanos en la cara sureste, y otro con número árabes al suroeste. Dentro de la iglesia de Saint-Gervais Saint-Protais se encuentra uno de los órganos más antiguos de París.
Completed in 1552, Eglise Saint-Merri was built in entirely Gothic style. The origins of the site date back to the 17th Century and the name dates back to a century later when Saint Mérédic was buried. Looted during the Revolution, the church was restored in the 19th Century. Notice the medieval style from the outside and inside as well as in the 16th-century windows. Famous composer of the opera Samson and Dalila and friend of Ravel, Camille Saint-Saëns played the organ which itself dates back to the 17th Century. Visit website for more i
At number 1-3 rue Ursins stands a very old house with a Medieval tower and windows. No doubt, you are facing a bourgeois mansion from medieval times. You may think you can feel a kind of feudal atmosphere in this street, even in this area, but not really! The architect Fernand Poullion built this incredible house in 1958: it is a patchwork of the old house that was located right here and various elements and materials collected from medieval ruins (wrought iron, stained glass windows…). The result is very confusing. The location – facing the Seine river, near Notre-Dame church and Hôtel de Ville – makes this house one of the most sought-after houses of the Capital. It is the former residence of Aga-Khan, and would be owned today by a Middle East Prince. Call +33 8 3668 3112 (Tourist Information)
This oft celebrated theater is situated in the heart of Paris. Théâtre du Renard has hosted many notable theatrical companies, including Maiakovski and Choderlos de Laclos. The program is eclectic and is specifically tailored to appeal to children and adults alike, and international plays are often performed in their native language. The theater seats 100 people.
Sarah Bernhardt's name seems to be plastered everywhere around this theater - except on the theater itself, since she no longer owns it. The city is now in charge of this theater built in 1862, and the performances slated here are usually of the modern dance or music variety, in contrast to the more traditional program of the Théâtre du Châtelet, just across the square.
