Geocache Description:

Urban microcache in the 6th Arrondisement. This cache will lead you to the location that tried to change geocaching before geocaching existed :).

A roseline or "serpent rouge" runs through several churches in France, including this one. This one is notable because it actually splits the altar in the church.

The cache is a APS film canister (same size as a 35MM). It's hidden and camouflaged, you will need to pull it out to grab the cache.

Bring your own pen or pencil to log the cache and bring something tiny to put in.


The cache originally contained coins (Russian, US, Canadian, Norwegian) and a tulip from the Holland.
