My understanding is the inside of Sacre Cour is the only cathedral in Paris that represents the Risen Jesus. All others show him hanging on the cross after his crucifixion. Anyone know if this is true? LOVE the Montmartre photos. I'll be there soon myself!June 23
More exploring of the Montmartre area.
@MinnieM123 here is a historic sign for you. We made sure we stopped to look at them whenever we saw them in the city. Even though they were in French we could understand enough to figure out the significance of the site.

Very pretty stained glass

I really liked how the stained glass was reflecting on the floor.

I thought these doors were interesting.

After touring the church we continued on Rick Steves walking tour. We stopped at a few shops, I don't remember why I took this picture but I do like the little sign hanging from the shop. I do remember that next to (or near this) was a candy store. My niece bought some different types of fresh made nougat and I bought a bunch of candied nuts. These came in very handy for snacking the next couple of days while touring.

I'm unsure what this building was. We were thinking maybe an old windmill or water tower?

We saw La Maison Rose which is a famous landmark/cafe and maybe even an artist studio. It is photographed a lot and shows up in a lot of stuff about Paris. It was cute but we didn't go inside.
