Exploring Paris

Paris has an inexhaustible wealth of thing to see and do. Here are some ideas for how to make the most of your time. The city is relatively compact,so you should be able to do most of your sightseeing on foot.

Galerie des Chimeres

Lurking between the towers are the famous gargoyles (chimeres)placed here to ward off evil. The grimacing gargoyles are not just for decoration.They channel the water off the roof. On a rainy day you can see it pouring from their mouths .A gargoyle look as if they are hanging on the ledge of the building, while the chimeras are the statues that are standing up.They both have gruesome expressions. This great gotic cathedral,founded on the site of Gallo- Roman temple,is a repository of art and history.It is also the geographical “heart” France
