Chapelle Saint Vincent de Paul - les details

Chapelle Saint Vincent de Paul

This inconspicuous church sits only a block from Bon Marché 
and is hardly worth a glance from the street 
as its façade blends in with the other buildings on Rue de Sèvres.

  However, the interior is filled with treasures and a bit of mystery.  
There is a shrine to St Vincent de Paul, ornately adorned, 
a magnificent organ, and a link to Louis Braille.  
The details and imagery on the base of this statue are stunning.

We stayed very close to this church last year. I'd seen many of your photos of it, and had to visit several times. It's amazing.
