Église Saint-Laurent

Église Saint-Laurent

Saint-Laurent was founded in the 6th century as the chapel of an abbey.  
The present church dates to 1429 and finally completed in the 19th century.  
It was built on Paris' north-south axis, 
linking Senlis and Orléans, 
as laid out by the Romans in  the 1st century.

There are always candles 
in the many chapels

A lovely shot - I've always enjoyed photos of candles for some reason
