Église Saint Germain des Prés

Église Saint Germain des Prés

After reading many books on the history of Paris,
I am amazed that there are so many gorgeous stained glass windows left in the churches.

This sixth century church has had a close-up view of war and destruction.
Recent renovations are lifting layers of grime to reveal the beautiful interior.

Marvelous window.

Some might even say that the survival of Paris's stained-glass windows over so many centuries is nothing short of miraculous. :~}

It's so vibrant, and I know how dark it is in that church. Sometimes when the windows are very vibrant they seem to be modern stickers on the window, not sure about this one though.
