Unexpected cards

During this week i've received 2 cards i wasn't expecting, 1 from Brazil and the other was from France.

Valéria "Vbformig" sent be this interior of São Francisco card in Salvador because she sent be a double card a few days ago. This church is located at the historic centre of Salvador da Bahia, an Unesco World Heritage Site. It's interior is covered with gold, it has beautiful portuguese tiles and the front barroc façade is from 1723.
This Montmartre card was sent by Valerie "octabis" and Tina "athena125" during their meeting at Paris.
"Montmartre is a hill which is 130 metres high, and also the name of the surrounding district, in the north of Paris in the 18th arrondissement, a part of the Right Bank, primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacr Cœur on its summit and as a nightclub district. The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded. Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh." - in: wikipedia.
