Across the Seine River is the Latin Quarter which has several interesting neighborhoods. An unexpected find is the small St Julien le Pauvre Church and I remember how surprised I was when I first found it. It’s an ancient place, once a Catholic Church, it is now home to a Greek one and one of the oldest churches in Paris. Rue St Jacques runs close by and this once once a starting place for a Roman road leading to Spain.
Right next to the church is this building.
This little statue is on that building looking like a model for the hunchback of Notre Dame to me.
This image is found inside the church looking very Greek Orthodox.
The carvings on top of a column. The figures are called “harpies” which are a type of bird-woman found in Greek mythology. I wonder why they were put in a church?
A close-up. Intriguing what you can find in old churches sometimes.
