While strolling along the picturesque rue du Faubourg Montmartre in the 9th district, look up when you arrive at number 21.   At the first-floor level, a surprisingly intricate low-relief sculpted panel illustrates the scene of the Annunication to Mary with the angel Gabriel, along with two other angels, looking on from above.  Created in 1719 to adorn the Convent of the Visitation, it was saved when the old building was demolished, and re-set on the façade of this modest 19th century building. 

21 rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 9th arrondissement (Metro: Richelieu-Drouot or Grands Boulevards)
