Church on Sunday....Ferriere-Larcon

As I have mentioned before I cannot visit a town or village without having a look inside the local church - its not a religious thing - its more of history thing. Churches are at the heart of most communities here in France and their story tends to form the history of the town or village they are in. As a result of these visits I would like to show you a 'Church on Sundays' going forward.

Where better to start  than the church at Ferrière-Larçon the topic of yesterday's  'a walk around'.

The 12th century church of Saint Mande and Saint Jean not only gives you two saints for the price of one but you almost get two churches!


As you enter one of  Touraine’s most interesting and captivating churches with its imposing three-nave structure, you are met firstly by a rather austere chapel interior with a beautiful vaulted wooden ceiling,passing through this leads you into the church proper.
