This urban church, marked by a soaring cement steeple topped by an open-centered cross, hosts a variety of events including classical concerts by individuals or groups and poetry or literature readings.
Pantin is located to the north-east of the city of Paris. It has as much charm and character as downtown Paris. Located by the banks of the Chemin de Halage canal, one can find a lot of beautiful riverside houses and parks, frequented by youngsters. The Pantin town hall is an impressive historic building, while one can also see a lot of old and abandoned industrial ruins here. One particular building is covered from head to toe in graffiti and is intriguing to watch.
The Saint Marthe Parish of Pantin, part of the Saint-Denis diocese, is housed in a lovely, tan-colored stone church with a slate-roofed spire. Elaborate dentillation decorates the wallspace just below the roof, above an imposing and elegant main entrance. The church hosts classical concerts, including some innovative new compositions and vocal explorations.
This lovely pavilion is situated in the heart of the 55 beautiful hectares (135 acres) of Parc de la Villette. It hots a variety of events throughout the year ranging from music festivals to exhibitions, plays, and concerts. It was designed by Catalan architect Oscar Tusquets and it features a wonderful Trabendo installation by the designer Kristian Gavoille.
This immense site, spread over three kilometers (one-and-a-half miles), is first and foremost a park where both children and parents can play and relax. With its wooded glens, a canal winding through the lawns, staircases climbing up the hillsides to lovely views, and flat lots for roller blading, this place is very popular on sunny Sundays. Children of all ages are invited to unleash their imaginations here: dragon gardens, astounding acrobatics, gentle dunes, and rolling fog set the stage. Linger for awhile in the Bamboo Garden to hear the wind blowing through these enormous grasses and imagine you are surrounded by jungle!
A remarkable "accessory" to this church is the organ, built in the beginning of the 17th Century and restored in 1990. The church itself was built in 1541 under the rule of François the First, representing a wide variety of architectural styles: the church body is the flamboyant gothic style of the 15th Century, the steeple represents the Renaissance, and the 1628 façade is in the Jesuit style.
This mid-century church is situated in the 19th arrondissement of Paris. It was constructed in 1954 by Henri Vidal and occupies a serene spot at the top of a hill overlooking Paris. The church occasionally features classical and choral concerts.
A magnificent, 400-hectare (988-acre) space of greenery and waterways just north of the town itself, the Parc de la Courneuve offers forest, lakes, waterfalls, hills, glens, and grassland for adventurous visitors to explore. Celebrations, exhibits, and activities are held in the park, and the natural flora and fauna provides plentiful educational opportunities. Nearly two million visitors each year enjoy all the park has to offer. Workshops and lectures usually free of charge, with a reservation required.
The charm of Paris does not just rest with big towers, castles and palaces, but it rests in the city's smallest alleys and lanes. It can be found in the little nuances of the city's community and its people. In the 19th Arrondissement, one can find a little of this charm on the rue de Joinville. This seemingly inconsequential street leads up to the Quai de l'Oise and is the platform where some of the city's most flavorful events happen. It is the little things, after all, that make up the big picture. Call on +33 8 3668 3112 (tourist information) for further details.
This Russian orthodox church is situated in the 19th arrondissement of Paris. It is tucked away from the road, nestled in trees and features beautiful ornately carved wooden architecture.

Rue de la Haie Coq was originally apart of the commune of Aubervilliers, but it was brought under Paris as around the year 1930. Starting from the limits of Aubervilliers, the street ends at Skanderberg Square (Place Skanderberg). A great place to explore the local life in the 19th Arrondissement, tourists will find cafes, shops and a lot more lining this street.

Situated behind the Place Bellecour, the Buddhist centre follows the methods of the Karma Ling institute, founded in 1980 by the Tibetan grand master Kalou Rimpotché. The centre is not a temple in the proper sense, but it does offer regular sessions of silent meditation as well as initiation into the Dharma and Buddha's teachings. The centre is linked to the Karma Ling institute situated not far from Chambéry, which allows everyone to progress in the ways of Buddha according to their own level of achievement.
