  • A very discreet and modest church in the pre-Saint-Germain. We listened to Mozart String 4 Quartet here. It sounded so good in the church and it was a great performance. The audience was not a tourist, but there were a lot of local elderly people, especially women.

  • St Thomas d’Aquin has a classical facade. The interior is rather unappealing but includes a nice looking organ. There is a Chapel behind the altar.  more »
