And with the many pastry and chocolate shops, you won't forget desert!

LES HALLES

Just a few blocks south, right by the Saint Eustache Cathedral is the Forum Des Halles, a newly renovated commercial center facing a park with a few playgrounds, perfect for sunny day picnicking.   On the other side is the Bourse du Commerce, a circle shaped office building in process of being transformed into a world class contemporary art museum slated to open in 2019. Up until the 1970s, Farmers would come here to sell their goods in large quantities to restaurants and grocers. As such, nearby restaurants have kept their tradition of using only the freshest ingredients. 

SAINT EUSTACHE CATHEDRAL

In the heart of Les Halles neighborhood, lies a 16th Century Cathedral with an architectural complexity the likes of Notre Dame. With a rather tumultuous past worth a look at, Saint Eustache has been the Church for France's famous historical figures like Richelieu, Molière and Jean De la Fontaine (who is burried inside). Louis the XIV even had his first Communion there.
