When one door shuts, an other one takes the photo
I've passed by this door a thousand times maybe, but I never noticed how beautiful it was. It's only after I stumbled upon an article that I decided to take a closer look. This door belongs to the Invalides church, and it was fully restored last year after 300 years of good service (Louis the XIVth inaugurated it in 1706!). The letters "SL" that you can see several times stand for Saint Louis, one of our kings to whom the church is dedicated. Next time I will step inside (believe it or not, I've never been).
