Église Saint Pierre de Montmartre

Saint Pierre de Montmartre

Built on the site of a Roman temple and a 7th century Merovingian church, 
Saint Pierre de Montmartre was consecrated in 1147
 and is one of the oldest churches in Paris.
When all of Montmartre is crowded,
 Saint Pierre offers a quiet and cool respite
with shadows and architectural details to discover.

That stained glass just beacons people to come rest a spell.

How beautiful. I suppose being in the shadow of Sacre Coeur makes it less of a draw for visitors but it strikes me that it would or should be more likely to draw people in for a moment of quiet reflection or a moment of respite for the feet.
