  • Beautiful Church…really really love the ceiling-paintings and the altar. The grand organ made by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll is something to appreciate too. We are lucky to have experienced the organ recital concert on Sunday afternoon. What a treat.
  • Comparing to the hustle and bustle of Paris, love the tranquillity and peacefulness of this church.. Entrance is free so highly recommend as a stop by!
