The 12th century
of St. George in Descartes is not the town's most redeeming feature but plays, as most churches do, a major part in its history.
The inside consists of a nave and two side aisles with rather grand pillars.
The pretty alter sits in a semicircular apse with some attractive stained-glass windows.
There is also a very attractive side alter under a vaulted ceiling.
Philosopher René Descartes was baptised here in 1596 - there is a plaque confirming this!
St, George has rather a grand organ which I believe was donated to the church in 1932.
Where's Joan? - couldn't find her here!
This view of the church shows many of the changes it has absorbed over the centuries .The information outside the church states that "It is Norman in style, with a noticeable re-emergant Gothic influence" mmm......
