Architecture Shot

The belltower of Saint Germain L'Auxerrois, the parish of the kings of France right opposite the Louvre was founded in the 7th century.
it's about time
On the night of August 23, 1572, its bell called "Marie" sounded the beginning of the massacres of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre. Thousands of Protestants were killed by Catholics, making this one of the central episodes in the Wars of Religion which darkened France and lasted several centuries.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
