This is a small church that is full of beautiful stained glass. There was a long line, but it was definitely worth the wait. Beautiful church.

before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
