Â All cathedrals fascinate me but St Eustasche in the second arrondissement of ParisÂ always has me walking about it, inside and out, looking around and up amazed at the work that has lasted for centuries by people whoÂ created by hand andÂ who probably had no idea that their work would be admiredÂ all these yearsÂ later.
Â It’s as impressive as Notre Dame is to me, probably because the viewer is able to see it whole from a distance, not just below where it appears squeezed in by modern buildings. Les Halles, the unfortunate mall here, is underground, thank God.
Â Here is is framed by some garden trellacing.
Â Here is an enormous sundial on one side. There are two more smaller ones on another side. As you can see, it was about 2 in the afternoon.
A nearby fountain sparking in the sun.
