As it transpires, I took an overwhelming amount of photos while wandering the streets of Paris. As I work my way through them, I now realise that it must have really tested the patience of my girlfriend’s family (thanks guys).
I have decided to break the post up into two. I just had way too many photos to put into one post. The first consists of photos from around the city with a lot taken near Sacré-Cœur. The second will primarily focus on the Eiffel Tower with a couple of shots of the Arc de Triomphe as well.
Guarding the entrances to the church two impressive equestrian figures representing King Saint Louis and Saint Joan of Arc.
On Montmarte, leading up to Sacré-Cœur, is a really cool square with several artists peddling their work. The artwork includes portraits of nearly any style, cityscapes and attractions just to name a few.
Eventually we ventured towards another very famous building. Along the way we came across a cool collection of fountains.
Next to the fountains was an impressive bit of artwork.
There is certainly no shortage of impressive buildings, statues, windmills and of course quirky buskers.
One of the most famous buildings in Paris is definitely Notre Dame de Paris or Notre Dame Cathedral. Translated as ‘Our Lady of Paris’, this incredible building is situated on the Île de la Cité in the heart of Paris.
reaching 90 metres (300ft). A supreme example of French Gothic architecture, it took almost 200 years to erect. It’s almost impossible to walk around this building an not be overcome with awe.
