This reminded me of Saint-Etienne-du-Mont.

Yes, Sainte Genevieve was buried in Saint-Etienne-du-Mont. She also has her statue on the façade of the church:

Once again, she wears the traditionnal gaulish braids. She lived at the time of Clovis, the king of the Franks who chose Lutèce / Lutetia as capital. The city became Paris, from the name of the Gaulish tribe, the Parisii.


Joan of Arc has many statues too, like this one in musée d'Orsay:

Jeanne d'Arc à Domrémy, by Henri Chapu

Le commissariat central du 12ème arrondissement est amusant, on pourrait croire d'avantage à une maison close ou à une boîte de streaptese qu'à un commissariat de police lol.

@ hkskyline, tank you.
