Today's church is Église Saint-Blaise de Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine or is it Sainte-Maure and Saint Bridget ...anyway it is the rather imposing church in Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine..There has been a place of worship on this site since the 5th century when the then bishop of Tours built a church to house the relics of Saints Bridget and Saint Maure, The present church was built in the late 19th century over the ruins of the existing church and crypt.
.On entering the church you are met by the ecclesiasticl sound of piped music which gives it a more atmospheric feel - more churches should have this. (Le Grand Pressigny does!).The one disappointing thing was that the crypt was locked - would have liked to have had a look down there
There is the usual display of stained glass...
and other things of interest.
Where's Joan? - here we have three for the price of one.
As usual it is the outside of the church where you can see much of its history.
