Up there neighboring the big church, there's still a carmel.

That is a monastery where nuns, the so called Carmelites are locked up. Of their own free will, huh. No one here forces them to live like this. It's just a choice they made. Their way of life, so to say.

And there's this gentle Irish pub.

Amen!

I tried to shoot the church itself, which felt impossible to me.

Ça va comme tu veux, vieux Louis ?

Yeah, this is king Saint-Louis. In fact, I should be more respectful here. I think he's simply the only serious and faithful king France ever had through her endless history.

Quoi de neuf, la Jeanne !?

This is Joan of Arc. The medieval English would have burned her alive as a witch because she gave the French the strength to kick them out of France.
So the Roman church made a saint of her too.
