Les Invalides - Church

Paris, France

Animas Forks is an old miners town in rural Colorado. The town is today a one of the most interesting ghost towns around.

It is hard to think of another urban site so wonderfully peaceful. The cemetery's many tall cypress tress together with abundant flowers creates a green shelter where one can escape the city.

The Palace of Fine Arts has one of San Francisco’s most stunning places, consisting of natural beauty combined with spellbinding ruins.

The church of Les Invalides has a strong military background and lays hidden deep within the Les Invalides complex. The church is unlike any other church in France.
