Église Saint-Merri

This church was constructed between 1500 and 1550 
in a style called "Gothic flamboyant."  
Surviving the French Revolution is the oldest bell in Paris, 
cast in 1331.  (That is not a typo... 1331!!)

This church was reported as a site of the 1832 barricades 
fighting in a republican uprising against the July Monarchy.  
I will be going back to my unabridged Les Miserables to look for clues.

bon dimanche
