So I'm off to Paris, France to visit family next week and thought I would take the opportunity to ask for any suggestions regarding any interesting ATS related spots to visit and document.
I know Paris well, in fact I was born there, so what I'm looking for are conspiracy/nefariousness/paranormal related destinations ... so no need to suggest I visit the Louvre or the Eiffel Tower.
PS. Also if you're in the Paris hood, let me know and we'll see if we can hook up.

The Catacombs of Paris may be something worth going to see, as well as the Pere Lachaise Cemetery,
Another focal point in St. Germain is the St. Sulpice church. Organ concerts are performed at the St. Sulpice, mostly works for the Organ. On Sundays you can actually climb the stairs and find yourself "inside" an organ with about 7000 pipes going full blast. Try to get there around noon to be included in this, or arrive at 10:30 if you are simply interested in the public mass. The organ was considered to be one of the best three in the French Kingdom. It was rebuilt to accommodate more modern technology without altering its historic design. It is still one of only three "100 stop" organs in the world. (the other two are in Germany and England) The church itself faces the Square St. Sulpice flanked by some of the priciest real estate in Paris (in other words, if you live here you are lucky). Right next to the square is the small rue des Cannettes which has a number of nice little restaurants, cafes a brewery and even the Birdland Jazz Bar. That whole little section which includes rue Guisard, rue Princesse and rue Mabillon seems to have more than its share of good food and nightly activity. Among recommended restaurants are L'Enfance de Lard, Chez Henri, Chez Georges, and whatever the name of the Italian restaurant is onrue de Cannettes that is closest to the square.
