Les Catacombes de Paris, 1 avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy, Paris 14e

They were transformed into a municipal ossuary at the end of the 18th century with the transfer of the remains of about six million people, evacuated from various Parisian cemeteries until 1861 for public health reasons. They then take the abusive name of "catacombs", by analogy with the underground necropolis of ancient Rome, although they have never officially served as a burial place. About 1.7 km long visitable, located twenty meters below the surface, they are officially visited by about 300 000 visitors per year. This part open to the public represents only a tiny fraction (about 0.5%) of the vast underground quarries of Paris, which extend under several arrondissements of the capital. There are also other underground ossuaries in Paris, inaccessible to the public, and which remain particularly unknown.

CHURCHES

La Sainte-Chapelle, 8 boulevard du Palais, Paris 1e

  • The Sainte-Chapelle du Palais is a palatine chapel built on the Île de la Cité, at the request of Saint Louis to house the Holy Crown of Thorns, a piece of the True Cross, as well as various other relics of the Passion that he had acquired from 1239. It is the first of the Holy Chapels to be built, conceived as a vast frame almost entirely glazed, and is distinguished by the elegance and the boldness of its architecture, which is manifested in an important elevation and the almost total suppression of the walls at the windows of the upper chapel. Its decoration is particularly appealing to sculpture, painting and the art of stained glass: it is its immense original stained glass windows that today make the Sainte-Chapelle wealth, because it was deprived of its relics to the French Revolution, and thus lost its main purpose. With the Conciergerie, the Sainte-Chapelle is one of the remains of the Palais de la Cité, which extended on the site covering the current Palais de Justice of Paris.

L'Église de la Madeleine, place de la Madeleine, Paris 8e

A wall is, of course, a symbol of division and separation, and the author wished here that a wall could also be a support for the most beautiful of human feelings. The bursts of red colour that dot the fresco represent the pieces of a broken heart that, when put together, form a perfectly composed heart.
