Three Best Churches in Paris

Paris is full of beautiful churches and you can stumble into quite a few of them just from random walking through the Paris streets. However, there are three famous Paris churches which really are too beautiful to miss.

  1. Notre Dame Cathedral is arguably Paris’s most famous church, or in fact one of the world’s most famous cathedral. There is good reason for this – not only is it historically significant, and also made famous by Victor Hugo’s novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, it’s also beautiful. There will probably be crowds of people there when you arrive, especially if you plan to climb the tower, but it’s worth the wait.
  2. Sacre Couer in the artistic Montmartre area of Paris is almost equally famous. Its dramatic white domes and location on top of a hill make it particularly photogenic, and touring the inside is fascinating. It’s also a great place to get views over all of Paris.
  3. Sainte Chapelle is a little less famous than Notre Dame or Sacre Couer, but still well on the beaten tourist trail. It’s small and can get crowded, but if you manage to get in without too many tourist hordes it can feel like a very peaceful place, and above all, the stained glass windows are truly magnificent.
