  • I loved this church! Both the outside and the inside are incredibly impressive. If you have a chance to go to Paris don't miss visiting this church. And also has a vibrant neighborhood outside with lots of Street vendors. The church looks like a Roman/ Greek Temple from the outside
  • We saw a concert here, which was really great and enjoyable, but the real star was the venue. It blew us away. Spectacular!
