The architecture of the base of the Chapel (See Tips on the Interior) is as elaborate as it is inside. Besides the detailed carving there are two fine statues, one of Moses with the light of the knowlege of God shining out of his forehead as he holds a tablet and the other a Hebrew high-priest (prophet?). The spiral staicase exits here and the outer face of the chapel is delicately done too. Note God peering down from the eaves.

Address: Boulevard St-Michel
Directions: Where Boulevard Saint-Michel meets Boulevard Saint-Germain... couldn't be easier. Metro Cluny-Sorbonne. Garden Entrance on Blvd. St-Germain.
