Unfortunately the outside was covered. Inside was nice but not overwhelming. Nevertheless worth a stop or small detour.

Another beautiful church in Paris worth visiting. Currently they are cleaning part of the outside so there is scaffolding set up on part of the front and side. None of the work effects the inside of the church.
