Wonderful contrast between the church and the motorcycle.

I believe we have a Saint Elizabeth of Hungary here, but it doesn't look anything like this one!

Oh I love old churches, this one is a beauty.

At first glance, it appears to be a plain and simple church, but upon closer inspection, there are some really great details.

Lovely little church.

A modest church. Two weeks before coming to the US? PNW again?

I like how simple it is. Wonder how the inside looks? :-)

Scooters are everywhere! When we stayed in the 3eme we had a Sainte Elisabeth de Hongrie on rue du Temple, not far from our hotel.

Simple et sobre, et pas bien grande, si on la juge par rapport au scooter. L'interieur est-il aussi austère?..

Such a thoughtful, humble church. I wonder if the leader of the congregation owns that bike.

It has sort of a SouthWest feel to it.

Lovely little old church Ciel, looks a bit 'Grecian' to me with the pillars and the portico! Pretty up to date vroom vroom parked outside!! I did enjoy the walk, but sooooooo tired now!!

Simple et discrete, rien a redire sur l'exterieur.

I bet the outside is deceiving and that the inside is much more decorative.

It took me a few seconds to figure out what I was finding odd about this church, other than its plainness. No windows! But I bet EG is right, more to see inside.
