Let the grand, age-old quiet of a historic Parisian church descend upon you as you raise up your eyes toward the graceful, vaulted ceilings and intricate stained glass windows, made achingly brilliant by the sun shining through. While Notre Dame and the Ste.-Chappelle are obvious choices (for very good reason), you'll find inspiration -- of the ocular variety, if not the spiritual as well -- at the 16th-century St.-Étienne-du-Mont Church, the 17th-century St.-Paul-St.-Louis, or the 19th-century wedding cake fantasy of St.-Augustin. Meanwhile, you can refuel on schnitzel at the 17th-century Polish church Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption, which now serves as a restaurant.March 5, 2008 Like Add a Comment
