And during Pride Month, expect the arrondissement the host the biggest Gay Pride parade in France!

A Corner for Catholics

Though the Jewish faith isn't the only religion that's prevalent in the 3rd arrondissement. This area is a suitable place for Roman Catholics too, mostly because there's a handful of churches and basilica here. The churches dedicated to St. Nicolas des Champs, St. Martin des Champs, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary are just some of the magnificent structures to look out for here. Beyond just providing a feast for the eyes, they all still hold masses regularly, especially during Sunday morning. Though in order to hear mass here, you'll need to learn French. None of these places of worship hear English masses
