Église Saint-Quiriace

Église Saint-Quiriace


This church in the small town of Provins, just beyond Paris, was founded early in the 11th century.  The town is divided into an Upper Town and a Lower Town, respectively called the Châtel (Castle) and the Val (Valley).


This church sits in its elevated position in the upper town, and although it has never been completed it is worthy of a visit.  Our trip to Provins was met with rain which seemed  moody and appropriate in this Medieval village.


bon dimanche

This is so beautiful. And so old. :) That's probably the most fascinating thing about this place to me. The history associated with it. And of course, your photo of it is magnificent!
