At the Place de Tertre are a group of poor painters who work, just as Monet, Renoir and others had done in the late 19th century. To reach the summit you climb a series of steps (or take a fenicular) and you are afforded some of the best views of the city. Beautiful little gardens, old homes, and of course cafes and gift shops abound.
Incredible views of Paris
We were so lucky to have gone on a Sunday morning....didn't really think about it, but we came in during an incredible service. The amazing large organ was so inspiring.
Beautiful architecture, sort of Byzantine and the stone is kept very white.
Photos truly cannot do this chapel justice.Deep in prayer at the altar while Mr. Fufu looks on
Lots of steps. Not for the faint of heart or the weak of knee
Cobblestone streets, if only they could talk
There are many street musicians all over the city, and most that we ran across were quite good
After spending the morning and filling our stomaches, we headed down the hill to visit one of my dear Parisian family members. French women tend to be quite youthful, and it really is hard to believe that this cousin is in her eighties!
