A quick search on the internet or a guide book for Cathedrals or Churches in Paris will present you with the usual suspects;  the grand old lady situated in the dead centre of Paris, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris and soaring high on the hill of Montmartre; La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur.

However Paris is home to over 240 Cathedrals, Synagogues, Basilicas, Churches, Mosques, Temples and Russian Orthodox churches each with their own unique charm and beauty, here are just a few that you might like to explore:

  • Paroisse Saint-Eugene – Sainte-Cecile
