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.

bon dimanche

J'adore Provins and totally agree about this church. We spent a day exploring the upper town and fell in love with it. Unfortunately I have very few photos of our time spent there.

Warm regards.

Put this on my list! I like the light and creamy color of this chapel! Bon dimanche!

A beautiful place to take photos, if nothing else! :)

It is beautiful inside, and rather dramatic.

How lovely and great to see all your photos. I see you share my weakness for bicycles and cyclists! Came to you via lilac and old roses and glad to make your acquaintance.
