This church is built into the rock cliff face and goes underground. Well worth a visit. Some steep steps to climb for the very elderly.

A stunning and impressive site to visit, carved out in the 12th century the carving started at the top of the cave...Aubeterre a beautiful French town in a wonderful area of France.

To think this church was carved out of one piece of rock is hard to fathom. The tour is definitely worth it.

Really interesting church. Cut deeply into the stone cliffs of this gorgeous French town - even the kids were enthralled! The square in Aubeterre is a lovely place to have an evening drink and the kids tend to all run around together quite happily.

Great place - the church and the village. Very quiet but plenty of little restaurants to have lunch in. The church is developed to just the right level where you can see the important stuff but not so much that it has been destroyed.
