Although France is now as secular a country as one could wish to find, it was of course for well over a thousand years deeply Catholic. As a consequence, Paris is dotted with churches, most of which, so far as I can tell, are now frequented more by tourists and concert-goers than by the faithful. Every little neighborhood, or quartier as they say here, seems to have one. Our neighborhood church is down at the end of our street. As I passed it this morning at 6 a.m. during my walk, I paused to take a picture of it. Here it is.
Visitors to Paris know it by its formal name, The Cathedral of Nôtre Dame.
