Church on Sunday...chapel at Chateau Beauregard

This week I'm taking you to the ruins of a small chapel that sits in the grounds of Chateau Beauregard in Loir-et-Cher. It sits rather delightfully under a canopy of mature trees.

There is little information to be found,even from the chateau's site,on this charming little building other than it was built prior to the 15th century and was tied to the original manor house on the site.

There is a carving above the door displaying the mark (shells) of the pilgrims of Saint Jacques de Compostela indicating it served as a stop on the route for the pilgrims.

I understand the chapel does still get used occasionally as the backdrop for local wedding ceremonies.
