The Holy Jacques Tower or Tour Saint-Jacques is a landmark found in the fourth province of Paris, France, on Rue de Rivoli at Rue Nicolas Flamel. This 52-metre Flamboyant Gothic tower is all that stays of the previous sixteenth century Church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie, or the renownedSaint James of the butchery, which was leveled not long after the French Revolution.The tower was encompassed by framework and clouded by sheeting for a few years as surveyors explored the state of the stone. Later discoveries show that the vast majority of the stone and its ornamentation starts from the late-medieval period of the tower's development, and was not included by the nineteenth century restorers. Lamentably, the overview additionally shows genuine splitting. The top seventy five percent of sheeting was brought down in March 2008, uncovering a revamped upper segment of the tower. From October 2008 to February 2009, the platforms and sheeting were totally evacuated and the encompassing park's finishing was being restored. At long last, on the 18 April 2009, the recreation center was re-opened to people in general.

  • 2017 November 15. the average rating is 4.3 points. Good.

  • Wonderful tower set in a gorgeous garden park. Can only go up in a group and it was all in French. Written summary in English available, though. 300 steps in all. Well worth the views of all the Paris landmarks.

  • This small park with the Saint-Jacques Tower was our beautiful beacon to our hotel a block away. It is such an architectural building to see going out to sight see and to guide us back to the Marais.

  • Neat tower in the middle of town with an equally interesting backstory. Look for it on wikipedia

  • Nice little park surrounds this tower. Plenty of quiet benches, a little playground and public washroom.
