City Districts of and Churches of Versailles!

Well what else. I need to bring you up to speed on this historical ,Royal and magical town of France. Of course, my beloved Versailles. Usually, cities are divided into districts and then neighborhoods and they give you a feeling of an idea of where you are going. There is a spiritual feeling visiting a new place so much rich in Religion over the centuries even with distractors ,it is still strong here.

The French won’t openly tells you about these things of Church relation, but once you get to know them as I do, been one adopted French with a French family going back thousands of years and working here among them, yes they do, and they follow traditions.

I did a blog post on the Churches of Versailles, a while back. To my pleasant surprise still rank as the most view post in my blog, not only by a few but 972 views! one blog post! So I give it to you again here:
