*** #Gargoyles of #NotreDame ***

When writing Darkness Rising, I drew on many things that fascinate me in Paris, a city I was lucky enough to live in for a short time. I’m fascinated by gargoyles–they abound in my garden and study–so I could spend hours at Notre Dame.

Here are some photos from my last visit to Notre Dame. My family had to drag me away!

Is there any wonder that Antoine originates from a gargoyle clan in Paris? And he’s a sculptor learning from the renowned artist Rodin. One of my favorite museums is the Rodin Museum in Paris–another place I could spend hours in. If you have a chance to visit Paris, you should definitely think about visiting. 😉

Writing this post is making me wistful for Paris. I think I need to book a return trip soon!

More pics and posts of my gargoyle obsession to come. Any suggestions on where I should travel next?

    I have been on holiday in France, too, this year. I have similar pictures taken from the cathedral in Carcassonne, that’s always a good place to visit!
