Discover a wonder of Paris: the Tour Saint-Jacques
It’s a real privilege to climb 300 steps up the narrow staircase to the top of the Tour Saint-Jacques. No it really is! All that remains of a 16th century church transformed into a stone quarry during the French Revolution, this unusual tower is 52-meters high and normally closed to the public. Surrounded by saints symbolized by animals, an angel and gargoyles, and beneath a statue of the holy man, visitors enjoy a rare view over central Paris. Lasting 50 minutes, the visit is only available by reservation. If you are claustrophobic or suffer from vertigo, we don’t recommend it! Forbidden to children aged under 10. What an adventure!
