    Since the beginning of the 17th century Temple du Marais oversees an uneasy history of Paris, and in the days of the reign of the Sun King, and in the days of the French Revolution, and in the days of the Paris Commune. Many times destroyed and restored, closed and open. The Church was Catholic Temple and convent, and the family mausoleum of Superintendent of finance Nicolas Fouquet, and place for meetings of revolutionaries, and the place near which waged urban warfare at the barricades of the Paris Commune, and be air-raid shelter during World War II, now Temple du Marais is one of the churches of the Protestant Church of France. In short, the reasons are more than enough to draw attention to the Temple du Marais during their Parisian walks.

    The Marais is a magical place in Paris. Every time I travel to the city of light I paced the streets and feel your atmosphere. The Temple du Marais is a place of worship which is in a stunningly beautiful building Evangelical and, even for those who have other creed, worth knowing for your architecture and beauty.

    I wasn't sure what difference has become the eglise Church, since corresponds to the Temple temple is used in the Church. If it says so in the da Vinci Code and the Knights Templar name came out, but that Church of combatants of the story was. Here is not so large, but inside was a red square. Looks pretty cool so took a photo. Walk from the place des Vosges, arrived within a few minutes.

    This is a unique chapel, in the shape and the presence of an oculus in the dome. It originally was connected to a convent. Now it is a protestant church. The building is beautiful and there are some silk hangings made by a parishoner decorating the interior.

    Pastors who refuse the blessing of same-sex couples. Despite a vote of the Synod of the Protestant Church United to France. Go your way: there is the Oratory of the Louvre and the home of the better soul. The "attestants" or discriminatory hatred and rejection of ankles in the heart. Avoid absolutely except for the "protest for all/protest for nothing" homophobes who will find a perfect hate close-knit!

    Always very welcome, and frankly the question of sexual identity is never used against anyone...

    We arrived by chance in this small church is evangelical. Inside, we were greeted in French. We specialize in English given as tourists. An elderly lady asked us in English, where we were going. "From Germany." "Ah, German." Then we got a little lecture on the history of the Church from her in very good German. It then but very positively surprised us. We had unfortunately no time to come to church the next day, be diligent about during our next visit very much like it. Merci Madame

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
