Abbeys and Cathedrals

While in Paris we visited the Sacré Coeur and Notre Dame. Later during our trip, we saw Fontevraud Abby in the Loire river valley, near Chinon. It is the burial place of two of medieval history’s most famous characters, King Richard I the Lion Heart and his mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine.
