One of the little discussed churches when you see or read travel information about Paris, St, Eustache, built between the years 1532 and 1637, is one of the more beautiful churches in Paris. Built in the Gothic style, much of the interior design is from the Renaissance period. The Pillars, arches and columns are magnificent, as well as the beautiful artwork and8,000 pipe organ. Several famous figures are buried here and many, including Louis XV and Cardinal Richelieu, were baptized here.

Crypt of Jean Baptiste Colbert (1619-1683), Powerful contrôleur général (roughly, minister of finance) under King Louis XIV of France. Colbert managed, against the incredible odds of the Sun King's extravagance, to keep some degree of solvency in French state finances.
