La chapelle de l'Immaculée Conception

The chapel of the Immaculate Conception is located right next to Saint-Louis cemetery. It was consecrated in 1867 and was built for the Clarisses Colettines, which I believe to be Franciscan nuns.

La chapelle de l'Immaculée Conception se trouve juste à côté du cimetière Saint-Louis. Elle a été consacrée en 1867 pour les Clarisses Colettines qui sauf erreur de ma part, sont des moniales franciscaines.

What a beautiful warm light and space! It would be great to step into, for a quiet moment. I remember the cemetery - the entire place would be great to wander. (How fun you've the same Philly travel scene in your own photo collection:)
