Fezzik In Paris

Two Americans, three cats, and too many places named "de Gaulle"

Located a block or so northwest of église Madeleine, the chapelle expiatoire sits at the location of the Madeleine cemetery, which was arguably the prime dumping ground for the victims of the Terror.

Now at the center of a small park, Square Louis XVI, that was constructed around it during the Haussmanian re-adjustment of Paris, the monument is a quiet, aesthetically-pleasing surprise in the middle of an expensive neighborhood.

Despite its proximity to Madeleine, tourists appear to be a rarity, as evidenced by the caretaker’s surprise that we were from the States.

As a bonus, there was a friendly (overly) well-fed cat.
