Church on Sunday...Yzeures-sur-Creuse

This Sunday we visit Notre-Dame church in Yzeures-sur-Creuse which is a late 19th century church built on a religious site dating back to the 5th century.

The church has been rebuilt/repaired over the centuries but here are still traces of the church from the12th century, in the north wall of the nave and apse.  

Inside is rather grand and belies its position as the church of a rather small town..

Where's Joan?

There is a rather elegant side entrance to the church...

...and a grand former rectory to the rear.

The gate was open allowing a better view of the rear of the church... a surprising grotto.
