One of the challenges in touring France is the large number of churches, cathedrals and basilicas. After awhile they start to blend together. This church was a highlight of the town and it is worth understanding the history. While I would not recommend coming here...More

Just off the riverside into a small square (2 rue vanosc) is this lovely old church, it is easy to be impressed by so many grander or fancier churches, and to perhaps pass this one by! but you would be missing a little gem! It...More
