We took these pictures 15 years ago when terrorism and security were unusual terms. We guess you need a student ID or special pass to get in and wander around. The Cour d'Honneur is the school's campus bur outside studying on the steps of the church may no longer be permitted. In the late 19C(?) it was graced by statues of a couple of recent graduates who made good: Pasteur and Hugo. At the north end the court is sealed off by a building like the west wing but with an arcade at ground level. The east wing is a story less in height.
