Eglise St Michel an imposing Church at the end of the street so stand back and take it in. There were some beggers at the door when we went in but they did not cause any problems and clearly had enough of their own. Go in for a peaceful experience.

This church too is worth a visit as are many churches in Europe. This one housed the relics of St. Elizabeth. Impressive carvings on the facades of the church.
