Notre Dame stands like a beautifully iced cake. It is amazing to think of the intricate detail and feats of physical ingenuity that went into the building of this in c. 1668.

Many churches and chapels show their devotion to God through the dedication to brilliant craftsmanship and expensive materials inside and they truly are magnificent and can lift your heart heavenwards.

I particularly liked the Sacré-Cœur Basilica which had a very touching prayerfulness, with lit candles glinting whilst Mass was held and hymns were sung.

And I was totally blown away by this ceiling mosaic which stretched across the dome of the altar chapel.

The colours, stylization, workmanship and strength of image was a sight to behold.

Beautiful sacred spaces.
