Église Saint-Denys-du-Saint-Sacrement was the first parish church built during the Restoration (after the French Revolution). The interior works of art make it worth a visit -- The most prestigious is The Pieta which was painted by Eugene Delacroix in 1843 in a mere 17 days.

The ornate ceiling in the entryway is repeated within of the church the full length of the nave. I will have to return for photos of the organ pipes.
