Saint Denis


Last church in this series (was that a sigh of relief?). This is Saint Denis, with its very unchurchy tower.

and an amazing sculpture of the most satanic looking priest I've ever seen. Keep your children away from Saint Curé d'Ars.

I agree with all your comments on the photos here. Especially about the creepy-looking priest!

He is positively creepy. Some exorcism gone wrong maybe?

These are spectacuale shots. You show as many churches as you like if they are as beautiful as these images.
