About Tour St-jacques, Paris
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.

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.
You have to walk by at night for a few minutes. It is spectacular yet eerie. See my photo of the tower at night.
It's a lovely part of a church.
10€ for a guided tour to get to the top. The down site is that it is only in french and nobody tells you that before
Oh mon dieu. Way 2 spooky 4 me. Almost 3 spooky 5 me
