Church on Sunday...Cravant-les-Coteaux

After taking you on our walk around Cravant-les-Coteaux last week and having given you the  the former parish church of the old village (Vieux-Bourg) I thought I should let you see the 'new' parish church. 

The church of Saint-Léger is a relatively new church here in Touraine, dating from 1863 built in the typical 'Latin-cross' design.

It is a 'locked' church so I had to visit the Mairie to get the key...fortunately it was next door.

It has a nave with a barrel ceiling...

...leading to the choir with more 'Lobin' stained glass windows.

There are two side chapels...

...and the now familiar pulpit.

There is a resplendent Joan.

 Looking back to the front doors.

Outside the church somehow seems to take on a larger persona, showing some of the familiar lines of architect Gustave Guérin.
