My husband and I were hoping to find a list of sights in Paris that relate to the history of the Huguenots, and/or other church history matters. Does anyone know of a list of such sights?
Also, we are booked at the Legendre Hotel. Does anyone have any comments on this hotel?
Well, this could be a tricky one. I don't know of a list and I think it would be more useful to create your own. It's a specialised subject of which you probably already have a good knowledge. Protestantism was rarer in Paris than in places like Lyon or Nimes. Until the mid 1500s, it was pretty much an underground movement in Paris, perhaps less so elsewhere. You might also consider contacting the American or Scots churches in Paris - they might be able to help.
hmm,, I was there 3 times and never heard about Hugenote special destinations.
The churches r mostly catholic.. and I didn't see any places dedicated to St. Bartolomew's night of 1572...
Maybe some religion museums, if any...
Visit the Musee de l'Histoire du protestantisme 54 rue des St Peres 7° district - on the morning except Sat & Sun, it is a part of the library (metro : St Germain)

HOTEL LEGENDRE : a good little accomodation but not centrally located. There is nothing interesting in the surrounding except at 15 mn walk the Montmartre cemetary.
Have a good stay
Thank you all for your helpful info on both the history questions and the hotel. I will check into that Protestant History museum, as well as perhaps contacting several churches in Paris.
