The Saint James Tower, one of the many signs of our favorite paths, is right in the middle of the City of Light.  Just restaured, it is shown in this video as you will never see it : from the inside and from the top !  


 
A former bell tower flanked by the Saint Jacques de la Boucherie church that does not exist any more,  it is on  the bustling rue de Rivoli, close to Chatelet, the strategic center of public transport in Paris. Hôtel de Ville, Notre-Dame, Pont-Neuf, the Louvre Museum, the Pompidou Center are just next door. Thousands and thousands of pilgrims used to gather here before they left to Santiago. Today's pilgrims use it as their starting point as well.
 
Look at the stained-glass windows : scallop shells and walking sticks...
