Just happened upon this church while walking around Paris. I noticed the gargoyles and decided to take a closer look. Architecture of this church is fantastic both inside and out. Some of the nicest stained glass I've ever seen. Highly recommend.

Down a small street and a couple of blocks South of the Ile de la Cite is this historic church which dates back to the 11th century. Some really great architecture, this church is a real joy to gaze at.
