This is a wonderful atmospheric church in a charming old town in South West France. You can feel the history in the place and you would be missing out if you were in the area and did not visit Aubeterre sur Dronne

L'église Saint-Jacques probably lies "in the shadow" of the more impressive L'église Monolithe Saint-Jean in Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, but you should climb the lane to the church and stand and admire the facade. The efforts of craftsmen and artisans many centuries ago beggars belief.

A quick stroll across the top of the village past the old monastery, hospital from the subterranean church to this one affords some interesting architecture and pleasant views. The facade is worth admiring but the rest of the church is rather plain.

Not a grand church but worth the walk up the hill. Peaceful and prayerful. Simplicity inside but the exterior demonstrates some grandeur not usually associated with small parish churches. There is a small English style tea-house alongside which is open most afternoons.

The eglise Saint-Jacques it towards the top of the town. On the climb up the road there is a good look-out on the left hand side that gives a good view of the old chateau. The church is in good condition, but not necessarily overly...More
