The Interiors Of Saint Merry Church...

These are the photos that I took inside Saint Merry Church, located in Le Marais area, near George Pompidou Centre...
I was walking in that area, on my own while Patrick, Alain & Adele were having drinks at a Parisien Cafe...The exterior of this church, it was shabby, hence not easy to find it.
I guess I stumbled upon it...

Organ Auditions at Notre Dame (& Saint Eustache)

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Paris is to attend the organ auditions at the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The place gets crowded and the tourists keep going around, in respectful silence. Nobody reacts with indifference to the sound of such a wonderful instrument. It sends chills up your spine when the lower keys make the ground shake and it seem like the all the glasses will break.

I find it best when my favorite Bach chorals are on the program, bien sûr...

There is another fantastic instrument at Saint Eustache (Les Halles) with regular organ recitals every Sunday. It's inconveniently scheduled for 5:15pm, so there's never time to run from Notre Dame to see it too.

Every Sunday at 4:30pm, Cathédrale de Notre-Dame.

Grande Mosquée de Paris

The Great Mosk was built on a site which had been given by the city in 1922 in remembrance of the muslim soldiers who died during the First World War. With an exotic Hispano-Moresque style, the Mosk is dominated by a 33 metre-high minaret and has a central green patio with North-African decorations. The building includes a hammam, a restaurant and a café where you can enjoy, while sitting in the shade of the tree, traditional pastries and mint tea.

You should really not miss to climb on top of the Notre-Dame Cathedral... not only you can have wonderful aerial views of Paris but you can also admire the really interesting 'gargoeuils' (i hope the spelling is correct, i'm not originally french). They are a collection of really bizarre monsters/devils

3 Parisian nuns

In the same little garden near Notre Dame, we had some lunch and noticed these 3 nuns eating theirs :)

We find this photograph quite symbolic - how some people view religion.

Go to Sainte Chapelle on Boulevard du Palais. Sainte Chapelle is a beautiful art of Gothic architecture with the oldest pained windows in Paris (13th century).
