More Exploring: A Pretty Church, and the Arc

Tuesday, we went exploring, hoping to see the Louvre, but, sadly, its not open on Tuesdays.  It was still a good day though, we happened upon this absolutely beautiful church on our way and walked around, took some photos and a brochure.

It had paintings on almost every wall, gorgeous depictions of various biblical scenes.

There were statues,

And of course, there was an organ.

This church was different from Notre Dame, it had the tall ceilings, stained glass,

But it seemed a bit more eclectic, and I suppose seeing one of the nuns riding a scooter wasn't bad either ;)

Then we made our way to the Arc de Triomphe and although they were cleaning it and I didn't get to see it in all of its glory, it was still a pretty neat thing.
