Parisian churches

You can't visit Paris without seeing its famous churches, so on the last day of our visit we went along to both Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur.

Notre Dame is sited on the Isle de Cite, with a beautiful original Art Nouveau Metro station,

and still a few padlocks around the churchyard railings.

As it was Sunday and we went into Notre Dame, the cardinal no less had just begun Mass, so we decided to stay.  I had never heard mass said by a Cardinal before.

 Although I speak almost no french, I could join in with the service as it follows the same order as the mass in the UK.

Afterwards we had a look in and around the cathedral, Kev had fun with his backpack pretending to be Quasimodo!

In the afternoon  we hopped on the Metro heading to Sacre Coeur, with an amazing view of the city.

 By late afternoon when we got there it was extremely busy, so we only stayed a short time.
So finally we hopped on the Eurostar Premier service (meaning we were fed on the train) at around 6pm, and were home at just before 11pm.
