Annotation

Jeanne d'Arc attended Mass and prayed at the chapel of Notre-Dame des Miracles in Saint-Paul's Church. - this chapel, and the bell tower, is the only part of St. Paul's Church that survived the Second World War. An impressive mosaic showing Jeanne, accompanied by her officers and clergy, offering thanks to the Virgin, is a centrepiece of the chapel.
