Clash of Religions

While most of Paris is dominated by Catholicism, the Goutte d'Or district isn't exactly part of its dominion. Sure, there are many churches here, the most prominent of which is Église Saint-Bernard de la Chapelle along Rue Affre, but there are also other places of worship here. Mosques for Muslims, synagogues for Jews, and more. There's even a museum dedicated to the Islam faith—Institut des Cultures d'Islam. An entire establishment devoted to the Middle Eastern-born religion, it's marked by beautiful artwork, 'La dernière phrase. Hommage à Hélène Cixous,' painted on a brick wall.
