These buildings are located in the Latin Quarter. Really each building there had enough detail and embellishment that I could have stared all day. I imagined the girls of the Madeline books of my youth traipsing about inside. Open doors and windows seemed to ignite speculation of who might live within.
This well known fountain (minus graffiti thanks to the photo editing talents of my mother!)was striking even without flowing water. We did pass it on occasion when it was fully operational, but I loved the gargoyles in any state of existence.
