Church on Sunday...Saint Etienne de Cheverny

The 12th century church of Saint Etienne in Cheverny has like many others in the Sologne a 'wrap-around' porch (caquetoire in French) where the congregation could gather for a chat after mass.

The church we see today has had a lot of restoration work both inside and...don't think it would originally had chandeliers!...

...or the elaborate altar.

 Loved the boxed pews...
...this one is probably reserved for the owners of the nearby chateau.

 Where's Joan...
