Église Saint Paul Saint Louis -- organ pipes


This 17th century church in the Marais has a beautiful interior with a dome that rises 180 feet (55 m.) above the crossings. If you visit be sure to note the Delacroix painting and the interior of the dome which is sky blue.


I love church organs and the creative woodwork in which the pipes are housed. You can almost hear the music.....

I love this church but don't 'think I ever really focused on the pipes. You're right, they are lovely!

These pipes are a real work of art—I actually can imagine what a beautiful sound they make!

Breathtaking, they are so majestic.

J'adore pipe organs ... and this one was one of the most beautiful we saw. For our next trip, we will need to go to St. Sulpice where they hold an organ concert after the 10:30 mass :-)
