The Saint Michel fountain


As promised yesterday, here is the Saint Michel Fountain. Built in 1860 it is facing the Seine River and represents the archangel Saint Michael victorious on the evil.

I still remember how impressed I was the first time I saw this landmark....and I never tire of seeing it again and again.

Yesterday, Virginia posted a popular meeting place from my student days here—and today you've posted another one! Merci, Laurent, pour un bon souvenir.
Can't wait to be back (in March)!

Just saw your post from yesterday—yep, that's it!

Loved both of these photos, Laurent, but those street posts yesterday are not very comfortable - ouch!
