One of our favorite things to do when we go to Paris is visit some of the many amazing cathedrals. So today I thought I'd share with you the ones that hubby and I visited there last week.
Perched atop the highest point in all of Paris is Sacre Coeur (or, "Church of the Sacred Heart").
It is an amazing cathedral, and looks totally different that the churches typically found in Paris.
Inside, there was a "No Photographs" sign, but I just couldn't resist sneaking a few quick shots!
Shhhhh! Don't tell!
Isn't the dome amazing?
This is one of the most popular attractions in all of Paris, and the area is usually quite crowded, especially on the weekends. Slipping inside a cathedral for a few minutes is not only good for the soul, but a nice and quiet retreat from busyness of the city.
This is the view you are treated to from the front steps of Sacre Coeur. What an amazing sight!
Notre Dame is our very favorite cathedral in all of Paris. It is only a few blocks away from our hotel, and in fact, we can see the towers from our room. Hearing the bells toll in our room is always exciting!!
We didn't go inside this time, as the line to get in was always so long!
Ooh, la, la!
This next cathedral is just as amazing! St. Sulpice was started in 1646 (!) and took over a century to build. I've never seen a church with twin towers before, and this one is quite impressive!
The interior was stunning, to say the least.
I really love this view of Madonna and the Christ Child. I love the play of shadows and light.
And just look at this massive organ! It is huge!!
Last but not least on our tour is St. Etienne du Mont. We didn't venture inside of this cathedral, our feet were getting tired of all that walking, and dejeuner (lunch) was calling our name!
Ok, since I'm linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday, I thought I'd share with you some of my latest "whites" that I've just added to my Etsy shop!
I really love this pair of vintage milk glass compotes. They are even prettier in person than my photos can capture! I also have a larger one, too, below.
I had fun collecting this set of vintage milk glass vases. I thought my end of summer blooms looked so pretty in them!
I also added this compote with matching bowls, in a lovely quilted pattern. You can check them out here if you wish!
Thanks so much for visiting me today, and for joining me on my little tour! Stay tuned, as I'll be posted lots more photos of our trip to France in the upcoming weeks!
