  • To see for its majestic colonnades and its view in perspective on the place de la Concorde and the Palais Bourbon, but also for its altarpieces and numerous exvotos. She's been receiving a lot of visitors since Johnny Halliday's funeral. However, it would be refreshing to be refreshed by the smoke of the many vehicles circulating in the nearby streets and avenues.

  • Since the disappearance of "the idol of the young" every 9 of the month at 12:30 a mass is given to her intention... Saturday 9 March we lived the event we start with Oh Marie... then to the organ hold the night, the penitentiary, then Requiem for a madman and a final with whom I love you the words revisited we are given at the entrance the emotion is palpable... the Harley are placed on the square, the religious ceremony becomes concert, portraits of Johnny, crowns of white and Red Roses, some weep... Amazing
