Dancer in the St-Merri Cathedral

Remember this cathedral?
I visited it on one of my first nights in Paris.


It's on the west side of the Pompidou Center, next to the Stravinsky Fountain.
The Tuesday before I came home, a small group of friends and I were walking around and decided to stop into this church for a second. This is what we saw.

This particular parish seems to really encourage participation in the arts--they often have different installations hanging overhead. And it seems like almost every cathedral in Paris offers free concerts (as well as some concerts you have to pay for).

Your photos make me long for a visit to Paris again, but I know I won't see the wonderful sights you saw because I would hit the popular highlights and miss these wonderful spots. I love the red door. I am enjoying your pictures and look forward to you posts.
