Bea Alonzo once went to Paris, the City of Love, to nurse a broken heart.

In a vlog uploaded on her YouTube channel on Saturday, May 29, 2021, the Kapamilya actress revealed she went to the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, or the Notre-Dame Cathedral, to pray after her breakup with former boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo in 2016.

Bea said, "Sa totoo lang, iyong Notre-Dame, I have a very special connection to it. I think it was back in 2016. I was going through a breakup."

She had wanted to visit Paris with Zanjoe and bought him an open ticket, but they broke up. Instead, the actress decided to take her best friend, celebrity hairstylist/make-up artist Varda Atienza.

Bea continued, "And so, I went there with Varda, my friend. Actually, it was a gift for that special someone na it was an open ticket.

"Hindi namin nagamit throughout the relationship because we were both busy. So I went to Notre-Dame and I prayed and prayed and prayed."

For Bea, it was one of the most special moments she experienced during her 2016 visit to Paris.

"You know, when you're in the zone where you feel like you're really connected and parang feeling mo, nasagot agad yung prayers mo.

"That's what happened to me in Notre-Dame."

The Notre-Dame de Paris is currently undergoing restorations after a large fire partially destroyed the upper part of the cathedral on April 15, 2019.

Like many others, Bea was also heartbroken when she heard the cathedral was engulfed in flames.

She said, "Nung nasunog iyong Notre-Dame or nagkaroon ng sunog iyong Notre-Dame nung 2019, I felt really bad."

BEA'S PARIS HIGHLIGHTS

Paris, France has always been one of Bea's favorite travel destinations.

She visited the City of Love for two consecutive years, in 2016 and 2017.

For her first trip to Paris in 2012, the food took center stage.

Bea recalled, "I went there for the first time, I think, in 2012. Laging merong new experiences akong binabaon from Paris because who doesn't want to like, sip their Café au lait and take a bite of their favorite baguette, croissant. Even their butter, their wine is the best."

The 33-year-old actress also enjoyed meeting new people.

She said, "I just love how chic the people are. Everyone's got their own thing going.

"And they say French people are snobbish, but you know what, I feel like parang ganun lang talaga sila.

"I have met good French people, you know. That is why it is one of my favorite destinations to date."

Bea also has a list of other must-see places in Paris, the first of which is the Eiffel Tower.

"Well, the first time I saw the Eiffel, hindi ako nag-e-exaggerate, pero naiyak ako lalo na nung nag-light up siya sa gabi.

"Nakikita ko lang siya sa movies before and nandun na siya sa personal right before my eyes. Parang feeling ko I have arrived."

As an art lover, Bea also enjoyed her visit to Montmartre, the art district in Paris.

She said, "You could see the entire Paris sa Montmarte. Sabi nila, iyon daw iyong naging inspirasyon nina Van Gogh at ni Picasso kaya nila ginawa iyong mga paintings nila.

"You know, I totally agree, parang there's something in that place that keeps you inspired. Parang it releases your artistic side."
