Church on Sunday...St. John the Baptist,Chenonceaux

This Sunday we bring you the parish church of St. John the Baptist in the small village of Chenonceaux (with the 'x') which is rather overshadowed by its neighbour. The view above is from the carpark of the adjacent hotel - and is probably the best way to appreciate its Romanesque 12th century origins

The front elevation is rather undistinguished but  inside  breaths of authenticity...well 16th century authenticity - when the church had a complete makeover;

You can see a little more detail here...
