Paris – March 15, 2018

Day was we spent walking around the city, 10 miles actually.  First stop was the Place de la Concord at the end of Champs-Elysees. During the French Revolution in 1789 the statue of Louis XV of France was torn down and King Louis XVI was executed by guillotine in the square.

Next stop was Sainte Chapelle, commissioned by King Louis IX of France in 1238 to house his collection of Passion relics. 

After the Sainte Chappelle or “Holy Chapel” we headed to Notre Dame, built in 1345.

We ended the day caught in the first of several protests happening in Paris in front of the Musée de l’Armée.
